An issue that shadowed Burlington, Vermont officials throughout 2020 began at the end of 2019.  As Progressives took control of the City Council, policing issues were targeted. Now the department faces cuts moving into 2021.

Protesters who have been camping out for five weeks across the street from the Burlington Police Department, calling for the firing of three officers, have ended their encampment.
