April 28, 2017

CONTACT: John Treadwell, Assistant Attorney General, (802) 828-5512

Attorney General Thomas J. Donovan Jr., announced the launch of a new community initiative to inform Vermont’s youth about criminal justice and law enforcement careers, such as prosecution and advocacy on behalf of victims. Lawyers, law enforcement officers and advocates from the Attorney General’s Office will be presenting information to Technical Center students around the State regarding the work of the Criminal Division in the Attorney General’s Office.

Vermont law enforcement agencies are consistently seeking to fill vacancies. The Technical Center programs provide a valuable service to Vermont and Vermonters in educating our youth in fields where there is a substantial need for new workers. Among the various programs offered by the Centers around the state are law enforcement programs.

“Our goal is to let Vermont students know about career opportunities right here in Vermont. The criminal justice system has many opportunities and through this initiative we hope to connect students with potential careers.” Attorney General Donovan stated.

The presentations by experienced law enforcement professionals will provide information regarding careers in law enforcement and related fields. The initiative will include presentations to the River Valley Technical Center and the Burlington technical Center during the first week in May. There will be a presentation to the Stafford Technical Center later that month.
