Brattleboro Appoints Vermont's First Black Female Police Chief

Vermont’s first Black female police chief has been appointed in Brattleboro and will start her job this week.
Town Manager Peter Elwell announced Monday that he appointed Norma Hardy from a strong field of 23 applicants. He said she’s had a distinguished 26-year career with the police department of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Hardy said in a statement she is excited and ready to get started and she most looks forward to “working with Brattleboro’s experienced police officers and engaged community members because the key to achieving community safety is collaboration and mutual respect."
