About the Bennington Police Department

bennington police department awards program

The Town of Bennington, VT, is located in the southwest corner of the state near the New York border and serves as the seat of Bennington County. Besides being a fine place to work, play, and raise a family, the Town also has historical significance - Revolutionary War historians recognize the Battle of Bennington as one of the turning points in that war.

The Bennington Police Department is the first chartered municipal police department in the State of Vermont and celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2006.

Today, the Bennington Police Department is a full service law enforcement agency of 40 sworn and non-sworn individuals dedicated to providing the best in public safety and service to the communities we serve, which include Bennington, North Bennington and Old Bennington.
