Greetings from the Royalton Police Department!
Chief Loretta Stalnaker
It has been another bizarre year for everyone with COVID -19 still wreaking havoc. Please, let us know if we can be of any service to you in these trying times.
This year the Royalton Police Department had Officer David Leighton retire after 3 years of service. Officer Leighton was a wealth of experience and knowledge for our department, and I want to thank him for all his hard work and dedication. We wish him well in his future endeavors.
The Royalton Police Department continues to partner with Rutland County Sheriff's Department and receives yearly grant funding from the Governors Highway Safety grants. These grants help fund extra patrols for our area in DUI enforcement, Distracted Driving and Occupant Protection. We continue to partner with other area departments in patrols and checkpoints. We strive to make our roads safer for all.
We have continued to partner with Windsor County Sheriff's Department and the DEA by participating in national Drug Take Back days. Our drug drop box is located at the Royalton Police Department and is open for all to use.
The Royalton Police Department also continues to partner with the Department of Health in child passenger seat safety. We held one car seat check event this year in July and hope to hold several more this year. If anyone has questions about car seats or wants to have a seat check done, please contact Officer Gardner or myself. We are both certified technicians and would be happy to help you.
In closing, I would like to convey to the entire Royalton Community that I am proud to be your Police Chief and will do my best to honor the trust and support that I have received. I have attached the mission statement for the Police Department and my vision for the future for policing in our community. Again, I encourage anyone who has questions or concerns to call or stop by. I thank you for the support that I have received, and I look forward to serving you for many years to come.
