Burlington posts police chief job opening
BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Burlington is officially looking for a new police chief again.
In May, the mayor said they would resume the search for a chief and seek feedback.
Mayor Miro Weinberger said they heard from 588 residents, and that Burlingtonians said they wanted to see both a focus on public safety and advancing structural and cultural reforms.
Weinberger says they took that feedback and used it to make the job description.
He expects to start interviewing candidates within a month and announce an appointee this fall.
Burlington has been without a permanent police chief since former chief Brandon del Pozo resigned in December 2019 after a social media scandal.
