Chief of Police

The Town of Springfield, Vermont is seeking a Chief of Police. The current chief and second-in-command are retiring in December 2022.

Springfield seeks an individual with strong leadership and communication skills who has a proven track record of leading with empathy. The most qualified candidate will be prepared to build relationships within the department and in the community and set forth a clear strategy to address the needs and challenges facing Springfield. They will demonstrate an understanding of current justice issues and how to address them in a professional and positive manner. The selected candidate will need to rebuild staff, create a professional development strategy for staff, and improve retention of department personnel. Foremost, the new Chief of Police must be able to build trust in the community, in the overall justice framework, and with the staff of SPD.
