Barre PD is a Dept. that is basically starting from scratch. For years, they had an administration that was completely incompetent, and had no vision. Within the past year and a half, a new Chief was selected, and has increased the size of the dept. from three full time to nine full time. The pay is above average for the area, and the dept. just went union, and is in the process of negotiating a contract. There are a good amount of details, and plenty of shi_bags to keep you busy. There is a substantial amount of drug activity for a small town (approx. 6000). Barre is the regional business center for many of the small towns that surround it, and has a decent amount of commercial and industrial based businesses. They have a K-9 unit, and are in the process of becoming accredited. The downside is that it is a "backwoods" town, that is very slow to accept change, and the politics in town are BRUTAL. If you need any other info, just PM me.
