Act 56 of 2017, relating to the Professional Regulation of Law Enforcement Officers by the Vermont Criminal Justice Training Council, has changed the landscape of law enforcement accountability in Vermont. This document is intended to be a brief reference for agency heads and officers, but in no way is intended to be a comprehensive review of the contents of Act 56; it is the responsibility of agency heads to ensure they’re familiar with the law.
The Act became effective July 1, 2018. For more information on statute 20 V.S.A. § 2401 click here
