*Congratulations to William Dodge, promoted to Barre Town Police Chief as of July 1, 2017!*
William Dodge was hired as a full-time, permanent police officer with the Barre Town Police Department on July 1, 1997, exactly 20 years ago to the day that he was promoted to Chief, upon the retirement of Chief Stevens. In 2002, then Officer Dodge was promoted to Corporal, and to Sergeant in 2004. Chief Dodge also previously served the town as an EMT for several years. The town is fortunate to have been able to promote a capable new Chief from within the department.
