Chief of Police

 The Town of Milton is a thriving, rural/suburban community on the edge of Chittenden (population 162,000) and Franklin (population 48,000) counties. The Town of Milton boasts an estimated population of 12,000 residents, marking us as the eighth largest municipality in Vermont.

The Town hosts a thriving and growing business community with large businesses such as Husky, Gardener’s Supply, and NG Advantage making their warehousing and manufacturing homes in town. Local companies have also chosen to grow in Milton with companies like Bove’s, R.R. Charlebois, and Premier Coach developing large manufacturing and office spaces. The town has identified areas for future economic growth, including the Catamount Industrial Park on the west end, and the village area TIF district

The Town of Milton comprises 61 square miles, is easily accessible via Interstate 89, and contains a mix of suburban and rural lands. Farmland and Lake Champlain coast lies to the north and west, with a large village center at its midpoint. The Town maintains its own preschool through grade 12 school system that has been recognized for providing excellent education. The quality of life is enhanced by the Milton Police Department who operate 24 hours a day to serve and protect. Emergency response in Milton is also supported by the robust volunteer rosters of the Milton Fire and Rescue Departments, who work under the direction of the Public Safety Department and in close collaboration with the Police Department.

 The Department

The Milton Police Department is a community oriented, full-service police department. The department is dedicated to community policing, a model of policing which encourages cooperation between members of the community and the police department to solve and prevent criminal activity. The department is comprised of approximately 16 full-time officers, 3 part-time officers, two administrative staff, and a Chief. The department has a canine program, two detectives, and one officer embedded in the local school system.

The department station is attached to the Milton municipal building, so it is directly connected to most other municipal office spaces. The building was constructed with a sally-port, holding cell, and multiple office and storage spaces. The public entrance is currently being renovated with ballistic grade materials to protect the department and administrative assistant. In the last fiscal year, the department budget was approximately 1.9 million dollars, including all operating and capital expenses.

Future Challenges and Opportunities

  • The department works hard to recruit and retain high quality individuals. However, like most Vermont departments, this task has become increasingly more difficult. In the future a new Chief will need to work with leadership to continue monitoring recruitment and retention
  • As the town continues to grow, the new Chief will need to address the challenges and opportunities inherited with this growth.

The Position of Chief

Since 1999, a 30-year veteran of the force held the position of Chief. Under his leadership, the force has grown from just four full-time officers to 17 full-time officers. During his tenure, the squad added a detective, a K9 unit, and a school resource officer. They have also improved turnover, retaining high-quality officers who are dedicated to our community. The town has appointed a veteran officer to act as Interim Chief until the hiring of a permanent Chief.

The function of the Police Chief is to oversee, coordinate, and carry out a variety of functions relating to the police department under the general direction of the Public Safety Department and Town Manager. This includes writing and implementing policy, reporting, compliance with local, state, and federal regulations, grant writing, budgeting, and administration.

The town seeks a Police Chief who is interested in continuing and strengthening the good work and reputation of the Milton Police department. They should be interested in collaboration across municipal departments and with community partners. They should have a public presence, representing the town to the community at public events and throughout each day.

Minimum Qualifications

The Town seeks a professional police supervisor with a minimum ten (10) years’ experience in a full-time law enforcement agency, with at least five years of increasingly responsible supervisory or command positions. An Associate’s or Bachelor’s degree is also desirable, or a combination of education and experience that is sufficient to demonstrate an applicant’s knowledge and abilities. Please see the full job description for additional information and qualifications.

Desired Qualities and Vision

  • Inclusive: proactively engages, listens, advise, and cooperates with residents and stakeholders using methods that drive effective community centered policing
  • Trustworthy: earns respect and trust with the community and policing through demonstrating responsiveness, knowledge, ethical and honest decision making; a successful candidate will have demonstrated these qualities throughout their law enforcement career
