Message From the Director

Welcome to the home page of the Vermont Criminal Justice Training Council (VCJTC). The VCJTC operates the Vermont Police Academy and oversees the training and certification of state, county and local law enforcement professionals in the State of Vermont.

I am extremely proud of the staff at the Vermont Police Academy and honored to be associated with them. The staff has a passion for providing excellent training and works tirelessly to ensure that the training of policing professionals in Vermont meets the needs of those we serve. We are committed to developing and implementing best practices in training in order to give law enforcement officers the tools to provide superior public safety services. We understand the critical importance of our role in training, mentoring and coaching the future law enforcement officers of Vermont.

The work at the Vermont Police Academy would not be truly successful without the ongoing support and commitment from our allied agencies, providing countless hours of adjunct instruction time, committee work and oversight. I want to recognize our partnership with the Vermont State Police, the Vermont Fish and Wildlife, the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles, the Vermont Sheriffs, the Vermont Chiefs of Police and all the other partner organizations. Thank you for what you do to support the mission of professional development of law enforcement officers.

Please take the time to scan our web site, as you will find training future law enforcement officers is challenging. The world has changed. The Vermont Police Academy stands ready and able to meet our mission.

Thank you for your continued support of the law enforcement community.
