|Welcome to the Springfield, VT Police Department
In the fall of 2006, Springfield Police Chief Douglas Johnston
expressed interest in establishing a Police Social Worker’s Program.
The Springfield PD is currently partnered with Health Care and
Rehabilitation Services of Southeastern Vermont (HCRS)
to provide a Crisis Intervention Specialist to the community.
HCRS agreed to donate staff time for a five-hour per week
pilot program that has since expanded to a 40 hour week
divided between the towns of Springfield and Windsor.
Since its inception, the idea has developed
into a program that quickly and efficiently provides
assistance to people in the community.
Issues that are frequently addressed include:
mental health, drug dependencies,
juvenile problems, family discord and
threats of suicide.
In order to work closely with the police,
the Police Social Worker’s
office is located within the police department.
Please join us in welcoming Donna Burns
as a valuable asset to the PD and the community.
