Message from the Chief/Director of Police Services

Lianne M. Tuomey, Chief of Police

Welcome to the University of Vermont Department of Police Services web site. We believe this site adds value to the enhanced communication and sharing critical to the safety and security of the students, faculty, staff and guests of our great institution. Policing is as much about education as it is enforcement, to this end we are dedicated to working closely with our community as colleagues in developing our future leaders and creating a safe learning community. In addition to working closely with our campus community, Police Services has developed strong working relationships with local, county, state and federal law enforcement agencies. We have written mutual aid agreements that provide clear procedural directions for requesting and providing assistance for a wide variety of critical incidents. I encourage you to open the lines of communication and share with us your thoughts and insights on campus safety, crime prevention, and law enforcement. We stand ready to become the facilitators of this important dialog.

Thank you,
Lianne M. Tuomey
Chief/Director of UVM Police Services
