  • Police officers are required by Vermont statute to be re-certified every 3 years, following the training and certification outlined above, in order to take fingerprints from minors as part of a voluntary identification program. To be recertified, an officer must submit to VCIC a set of prints via electronic capture OR the standard ink and roll method. The prints will be examined for quality, and if acceptable, recertification will be granted. If the prints are found to be unacceptable, the officer will have to re-take the Basic Fingerprinting Certification Course. Please note: recertification is NOT required for the purposes of taking prints as part of an investigation, employment-related background checks, etc.

Improving Outcomes and Accountability: A Community Partnership Approach to Resilient Youth

  • August 19, 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM at AHS District Offices 100 Mineral Street, Springfield, VT 05156
  • Questions? Contact Marc Wennberg-, 802-249-0397

What: A participatory training with police, prosecutors, and restorative justice practitioners in order to build better outcomes for Vermont’s young people.

Who: This day-long event is for formal and informal leaders in community-responsive and evidence-based policing. Trainers are both restorative justice and law enforcement professionals.

Why: Vermont’s young people face a host of risks. Many of these risks–and the resulting behaviors–reached crisis proportions during the pandemic, impacting families, schools, and communities. Working with young people poses unique challenges for law enforcement officers to find the right balance between support and accountability.  Trauma-informed restorative practices are proven to help young people learn from mistakes, make meaningful amends to the people they impacted, and move forward in an effective way. Restorative practices can also provide timely outreach and services to victims of crime. This training will help law enforcement officers better meet the needs of the communities they serve.

Learning Objectives: Participants will gain experiential insight into the core practices and effective principles of the restorative justice approach; reflect on the challenges and inequities of the current system; gain understanding in brain science and the impacts of trauma on youth development; and envision solution-oriented plans to support better outcomes for young people, communities, and police.
