The Burlington City Council is scheduled to vote on the appointment of an interim police chief in the aftermath of the resignation of the previous chief, who admitted using a fake Twitter account.

If approved in the meeting scheduled for Monday, Jennifer Morrison would start immediately. Former chief Brandon del Pozo resigned last month after admitting he used a fake Twitter account to heckle a critic. Acting chief Jan Wright was then placed on administrative leave after she disclosed she had also created a fake social media account.

Morrison was a Burlington police officer for more than two decades before she became chief in Colchester. She retired in 2018.
