Full-Time Police Officer

The Williston Police Department is currently accepting applications for the position of Police Officer in anticipation of a vacancy due to retirement.

The Williston Police Department serves a community comprised of about 9,000 residents and is committed to the delivery of high quality services designed to maximize the community’s quality of life.  The Town of Williston is home to several of Vermont’s larger box stores such as Walmart, Home Depot, Best Buy, and Dick’s Sporting Goods just to name a few.  In addition, the Town has a high volume of business employers with the one of the largest being the federal government with their vast amount of office space that they occupy.

The Williston Police Department is comprised of 17 sworn officers, 3 civilian support staff, and is home to a community justice center supported by a Town appointed community justice board.  The police department prides itself on its ability to provide high quality equipment to staff members, a facility that is only 7 years old, and its commitment to support employee accomplishments.  The department provides 24 hour police protection along with partial dispatch coverage supplemented by dispatch coverage by the Vermont State Police.

We offer competitive salary and benefits as compared with other local agencies.

It is our goal to send a new officer to the next police academy if a Vermont certified officer is not recruited.

Interested persons should visit our website at www.town.williston.vt.us/police to download our application and personal history questionnaire.  Both of these documents must be submitted for consideration.

Although we do not require a college degree, we would prefer candidates that have obtained a higher education degree or have previous military or law enforcement experience.  We value and appreciate diversity in our workforce and welcome those who have diverse backgrounds to apply.

Although we accept applications year around, we encourage you to submit your application to the Office of the Chief of Police for consideration for this anticipated opening by October 11, 2014.
