Fair and Impartial Policing Committee

The Fair and Impartial Policing Committee is comprised of law enforcement professionals representing agencies from throughout Vermont, as well as invested community stakeholders. One of this committee’s charges is to collaborate and disseminate mandatory biennial training as set forth in 20 VSA 2358(e)(3). This statute requires all law enforcement officers to receive Vermont Criminal Justice Council approved training relative to Fair and Impartial Policing during odd-numbered years. The Fair and Impartial Policing Sub-Committee is also tasked to review and update basic Fair and Impartial Policing Curriculum, to ensure relevance and alignment with current best practices.
