Shelburne Police and several other law enforcement agencies were honored for their traffic safety initiatives in the annual Vermont Law Enforcement Challenge.

The Vermont Law Enforcement Challenge is modeled after the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s Chief’s Challenge. Agencies submit applications describing their traffic safety programs. A panel of judges evaluated each entry and awarded points based on innovative quality and overall effectiveness of the program.

Shelburne Police ranked first place in their division (police agencies with 6-15 officers), scored the highest among all Vermont agencies submitting applications.

In addition, Shelburne Police Sergeant Fortin was honored for his tireless efforts by receiving the Vermont Governor’s Highway Safety Program’s “Highway Safety Award.”

This award is present to an individual officer who has demonstrated tireless devotion to highway safety in the communities served and to the State of Vermont.

The awards were presented at the annual luncheon held on June 11 in South Burlington.
