News and Announcements

For updates and announcements, BPD primarily uses Twitter: http://twitter.com/@OneNorthAvenue. If you are not subscribed to Twitter, you can view our Twitter feed from our website: https://www.burlingtonvt.gov/Police.

Updates will include:

  • Traffic – information related to traffic problems or diversions and parking bans
  • Community Information – information about meetings that relate to public safety topics
  • Advisories – Crime Alerts and Press/Informational Releases (from events in which we are seeking information from the public or a neighborhood that may be impacted by a response or have a recognizable interest in immediate information about an event)
  • Alerts - Critical Incident Information – information on major events, emergencies, or things such as Amber Alerts, missing persons, etc.

We believe that this will be a helpful tool in directly alerting interested persons of traffic issues, events relating to public safety, general advisories, and in the event of an emergency - critical or useful information.

For announcements on parking bans, please check Nixle or VT-Alert.
