JAY, Vt. (AP) - Police from Vermont and Quebec are getting to know each other so they'll be ready in case there's a major crime, terrorist attack or natural disaster along the U.S.-Canadian border.
Several dozen specialized troopers from the Vermont State Police and the Surete du Quebec are taking part in a two-day exercise at the Jay Peak resort to work on cross-border law enforcement.
The event that will end Thursday is the third workshop designed to develop relationships and a better understanding between law enforcement officers on both sides of the border.
Vermont Public Safety Commissioner Keith Flynn says crime, disasters and terrorism know no borders.
Surete du Quebec cross border coordinator Lt. Daniel Campagna says they have found partners and friends with their Vermont counterparts.
