The Derby Station is located in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. This northeastern corner of the Green Mountain State is still one of the least populated areas with a total population of 33,535 residents covering 1395 square miles. The terrain and sheer size of this coverage area make it a challenging area to police. Over the years, the State Police have been, and continue to be, the primary law enforcement agency in the Kingdom. We police 30 towns from the top of Jay Peak east to Beecher Falls on the New Hampshire/Canadian border and as far south as Sheffield Heights on Interstate 91 and the town of Craftsbury. When it is all said and done, Derby State Troopers are proudly charged with patroling the largest geographic coverage area in this great State of Vermont.
The Derby barracks provides public safety and law enforcement services to the towns of Albany, Averill, Averys Gore, Barton, Bloomfield, Brighton, Brunswick, Brownington, Canaan, Charleston, Coventry, Craftsbury, Derby, Ferdinand, Glover, Greensboro, Holland, Irasburg, Jay, Lemington, Lewis, Lowell, Maidstone, Morgan, Newport Town, Norton,Troy, Warners Grant, Warren Gore, Westfield, and Westmore in the counties of Essex and Orleans.
The Derby Station area encompasses half of the Canada/Quebec-U.S./ Vermont Border and is responsible for an intergal part of the Vermont State Police's Homeland Security mission. The Derby Station Troopers work with other agencies on a daily basis, such as the U.S. Border Patrol, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, to insure our citizens are protected from foreign and domestic terrorism.
