Mayor Miro Weinberger Announces Jennifer Morrison Will Not Return from her Absence to the Burlington Police Department

Acting Chief Jon Murad to Continue Serving until Police Chief Search Resumes in 2021

 

Burlington, VT – Today, Mayor Weinberger announced that Jennifer Morrison will not return to the Burlington Police Department as initially planned when she left to care for her husband in June. Chief Morrison's letter to Mayor Weinberger is below.

“I am grateful that Chief Morrison stepped in to assist the City during a very difficult time for the Burlington Police Department last winter,” said Mayor Weinberger. “I wish her and her family strength and support as they navigate through this challenging personal time.  While I will miss Chief Morrison’s skill, can-do attitude, and her candor, I have great confidence that Chief Murad will continue to successfully lead the Department until a permanent chief is named, as he has since June.”
