The Vermont Department of Public Safety is making some staffing changes to emphasize the importance of using technology and data to make the state safer.

The position of deputy commissioner is now jointly held by Francis Aumand, director of the Division of Criminal Justice Services, and Col. Tom L'Esperance, director of the Vermont State Police.

Aumand will be responsible for coordinating the department's technology and information sharing initiatives, and will serve as the department's legislative liaison. L'Esperance will continue his focus on identifying and preventing criminal activity.
