The Barre City Police Department is committed to a community and problem-oriented policing philosophy with a procedural justice approach. We are dedicated to implementing the "Six Pillars of 21st Century Policing" guidelines as we strive to build community, foster inclusivity, and empower others to increase the quality of life and public safety. Click on the PDF book links below to learn more about these principles and the actions we are working toward.







In November 2023 BCPD procured body worn cameras, partially through grant funding. The body worn camera program took effect in April 2024 after setup and training was complete. The program operates under the guidelines established in the statewide mandatory body worn camera policy  

Through its charge, the Barre City Police Advisory Committee reviews all of the policies of the Barre City Police Department, providing community perspective and feedback to the Chief. BCPD's full policy manual can be found HERE

In December 2023 BCPD pledged commitment to the One Mind Campaign through the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) to improve our response to those affected by mental health issues. With the One Mind Pledge, BCPD will demonstrate a sustained commitment to implementing leading practices and strategies over a period of 12-36 months.
