Women in VSP
The Department hired the first two female Troopers in 1977. Although the number of women has fluctuated over the years, today there are a total of 36 female Vermont State Troopers. We have a higher percentage of female Troopers than any other State Police agency in New England.
Our women have encompassed a variety of positions with the department including Detective Sergeant in BCI, Child Abuse and Neglect Investigator, Station Commander, Training and Recruiting Sergeant, Patrol Commander, DUI Trooper, Criminal Analyst, VT Drug Task Force, Professional Standards Commander, and Road Troopers.
The Vermont State Police offers incredible opportunities for all our members. From special assignments to special teams, our women play an integral role in the success of the Department. Your only limitations are those that you impose! Picture yourself in any of these additional duty roles:
In addition to all that these women do for the department, we are also extremely busy off-duty. We are wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, girlfriends, coaches, bikers, students, runners, mentors, volunteers, competitors, skiers, hikers, and we serve in a variety of service organizations in our schools, churches, and communities.
