Burlington City Council Approves New Police Positions

The Burlington City Council met Tuesday night and approved a request from the Burlington Police Department to authorize three new Police Service Specialists and one new Police Public Information Specialist. When Chief Brian Long was with us Monday morning, he talked about the need for the public information specialist position. That role is so important because the police department must distribute its own news through a variety of social media platforms – which is different from previous generations in which the department could rely on local media outlets to deliver news updates to the people of Burlington.
