New Canaan Police to Operate at 39 Locust Avenue Starting December 4
The New Canaan Police Department will be temporarily located at 39 Locust Avenue as of Dec. 4, 2023 while a complete renovation of the current headquarters on South Avenue is underway. All services and operations for the general public normally conducted at police headquarters will be conducted at the new temporary location.
Parking for persons visiting the police station will be on Locust Avenue and in the municipal parking lot on Locust Avenue.
The Police Department on South Avenue will be closed to the public until the completion of the renovation, which is scheduled for late 2025.
A thorough listing of police-related services and detailed information about utilizing the services are found at newncaaan.info/public_safety/police. Commonly used services include obtaining records, reports and permits; filing a complaint; submitting an anonymous tip; fingerprinting; animal control; disposing of medications; hiring an off-duty officer; and more.

The building’s exterior Colonial Revival architecture and historic character will be unchanged.
