Greetings,

Welcome to the Vermont Police Association website.

This website is dedicated to the professional men and women who protect the lives, property, and constitutional rights of the citizens of Vermont.

We hope the members of the Vermont Police Association (VPA), and our communities, find this website helpful and informative. We would like the website to serve as a tool to facilitate an effective means of communication between our valued members and the communities we serve.

The Vermont Police Association was established in 1949 to represent the law enforcement community, promote community relations and to establish a commitment of excellence for all citizens of the State of Vermont.

Sincerely,

President, Kevin Blongy

VPA Members

I hope all of you are doing your best to stay safe and healthy in these very trying times.

The board of trustees is doing their best to adapt to these changing times and provide the best representation to the Vermont Police Community.

Our lobbyist has done an outstanding Job trying to stay on top of the ever-changing legislative issues we are facing. Our lobbyist with the help of our legislative committee, and the board of trustees have been actively trying to have as much input as possible in the fast-moving legislation regarding police reform and other pertinent items.

With the current changes going on it is of the utmost importance that each one of you become active members in the Vermont Police Association and your local level organizations.  There is strength in numbers when we are trying to mitigate circumstances that will adversely affect our profession and when trying to get lawmakers to make informed decisions.

Additionally, due to the current climate of the Global Pandemic we cannot host the annual convention as we normally would have.

However, we do need to hold an annual meeting which will be tentatively done virtually on 12/14/2020 at 2000 hours.  More information and a link will be posted on our website and on our Facebook page.  We will also have to have ballot voting for trustee positions in a virtual / electronic format which we are working on.  More information will be posted as soon as we can finalize plans for this.

Lastly, anyone interested in running for a trustee’s position for the Vermont Police association must submit a letter / email of intent, to me no later than 11-20-20.  You must be a full active / paid member for the 2020 calendar year to be eligible to run for a trustee position. Should you have any questions, comments or concerns don’t hesitate to reach out.

Stay safe, Stay well
