Burlington Police Chief Tom Tremblay will soon have a new job.
He will become Vermont’s next public safety commissioner next month.
Tremblay will replace Commissioner Kerry Sleeper, who is retiring.
The 46-year-old has 24 years of policing experience and has worked for the city of Burlington since 1983. He became chief in 2003, after serving as deputy chief of administration and operations chief before that.
Governor Jim Douglas describes Tremblay as “a proven manager and innovator in the growth of community policing.”
