The Town of Killington’s Police Department has a new phone number for non-emergency calls. The number, which went live this week, is (802) 422-3200. The announcement was made this week by Killington Chief of Police, Whit Montgomery.
“This is another positive step in the process of transitioning from a Constable Department to a Police Department,” stated Chief Montgomery. “We have been using personal cell phones as the department’s primary contact during the first six months. The new number will make it easier for residents to reach the department and streamline officer’s responses.”
The number will be answered 24/7, either by our officer on duty, or a live operator who will then dispatch the calls accordingly. Montgomery stressed that for emergencies callers should always dial 911.
The new phone line will serve as the Killington Police non-emergency number. The call taker will log the caller’s information and nature of call, and immediately inform the police officer on duty. In the event there is not a Killington officer on duty, callers will be able to leave a message for the Department or be connected State Police dispatch. Messages to the department will be returned when the next police officer is on duty, or within 24 hours, whichever comes first.
Other procedures regarding police contact remain the same:
- For emergencies, always call 911, as this gets the quickest response from the closest officer or emergency personnel.
- For non-emergency situations, call the Vermont State Police at (802)773-9101. These calls are handled by the Vermont State Police or forwarded to a Killington Police Officer to handle. Or call the Killington Police Department directly at (802)422-3200.
