  • Vermont Sheriff's Departments

    I understand they usually do more than sheriff's departments in other New England states (those that even have them). But what are they usually tasked with? Are they strictly civil affairs and court security, or do they respond to calls, do patrol, (full police service) etc?

    It depends on the County. There are Sheriff's departments in this state who offer full police services (they contract with towns for this), and some do not. All do civil affairs and court security.

      Which ones do full service? I did a little research, but the only one I could find for sure was Bennington County.

        The ones I am sure of are Bennington, Windham, Lamoille, Franklin, and I think Windsor.

          Windsor only does contract traffic enforcement, no criminal work. Windham does mostly traffic enforcement but I think still have one or two towns they do a little bit of criminal work (up until they go off duty at 9 or 10 pm and then State Police take over). I'm not sure about Bennington County. The two up north, Lamoille and Franklin are the only two "true" full service agencies.

          Most of the Sheriffs concentrate on contract traffic enforcement, court security, prisoner transports, contract road work details, and security/police at ski resorts. They are also not unionized and pay poorly.

          This may change in the future as the state is working on spreading out the work in rural areas so VSP is not so "overworked".

            Rutland County Sheriff's also do patrol work. Cover a few towns, and do criminal work.

              Rutland County does full service patrol work for Proctor and West Rutland. They also have a deputy assigned full time to the Diamond Run Mall. Other than that, they only do speed contracts with a few other towns.

                VSP is too overworked? When did that happen?

                  I’ll stick with Commercial Motor Carrier and vehicle enforcement work.
