Chief Steve McQueen Department Patch
Department VehicleCurrently fifteen officers and 4 dispatchers serve the City of Winooski on a full-time basis. The department polices a very diverse community of about 7,000 residents handling over 12,000 calls for service per year. Currently the department provides a minimum of two officer coverage per shift and 24 hour dispatching for the police department and fire department.

The department has several distinct functions in addition to the "normal" patrol activity associated with policing. We have one full-time police officer assigned to the Winooski School District as School Resource Officers, an investigator assigned to family based incidents and a Community Justice Center. Winooski was the first community in Vermont to dedicate officers to school based policing, partially funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice. In addition, a patrol officer is assigned as an Investigator providing follow-up investigation to criminal activity within the City.

The department has 1 Deputy Chief of Police, 1 Lieutenant (Patrol Division supervisor) 3 Sergeants (shift supervisors) and 8 Officers who are responsible for the 24 hours policing of the City. They have 5 marked patrol vehicles and 1 unmarked vehicle available for regular patrol. In addition, the department has a dedicated Youth Services vehicle, used by the School Resource Officer, a vehicle for the Detective and a Chevrolet Utility Pick-Up truck.
