Passing of K-9 Elmer #9046

The Connecticut State Police regrets to announce the passing of K-9 Elmer #9046 assigned to Detective David Collins #930 of the Fire & Explosion Investigation Unit. K-9 Elmer was 6 and was laid to rest on July 6, 2024 due to medical complications.


Det. Collins and K-9 Elmer were graduates of the Connecticut State Police 212th Accelerant Detection Class in fall of 2020 and had served the State of Connecticut for the last 3 years. During his career, K-9 Elmer traveled all across the State to assist at numerous fire scenes, working alongside our Local, State, and Federal partners in locating countless evidentiary items. Additionally, K-9 Elmer assisted in training fire investigators, as well as educating the public about fire safety. K-9 Elmer was loved by all and will be sorely missed.
