The Vermont State Police disseminate press releases for significant criminal or public safety incidents and arrests, but it is not intended to document every public contact or response to a call-for-service. If you have a question regarding an incident or case, please contact your local state police barracks or the public information officer. Please note press releases are available on this blog for 6 months following their public release. Please contact the public information officer if you need access to one that is older.

[VSPMEDIA] VSP Media Press Release Lists

To all recipients of VSP press releases. 


Please be advised:


The Vermont State Police has determined that effective immediately, press releases from the Vermont State Police will be sent to one statewide media list only, called VSPMEDIA.  If you are signed up for either Medianorth or Mediasouth lists only, you have been automatically added to the new statewide list.  This means you will receive all VSP press releases, no matter your geographical location.


If you wish to remove yourself from this new list, please respond to this advisory with the email address that our press releases are sent to, and we will remove that address from this new list.  As a result, you would no longer receive any VSP press releases.  As an option to this change, you can also see VSP press releases on our blog at .  This blog is automatically updated with every press release, is keyword searchable, and has the option to sort press releases by specific Field Station.  If you wish to add any email addresses to this new list, please respond to this email with that request and the address.


This effort will improve our ability to advise all Vermonters of VSP activities and create a uniformity of public safety messaging impacting the state.  The emails will appear in your inbox with [VSPMEDIA] in the subject line.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact:
