South Burlington Police Department’s (SBPD) newest officer, Aaron Fay, recently completed his training at the Vermont Police Academy. A native of Connecticut, Fay joined the SBPD this summer and spent the last 16 weeks at the Academy. He will now spend the next four months partnered with a senior officer for additional training.
SBPD Chief Trevor Whipple says, “I am excited to have a young man with Aaron’s interest and motivation join the SBPD. He has already worked hard to excel at the police academy proudly representing our department.”
Officer Fay adds, “Above all, I would like to thank Chief Whipple and all of my co-workers who have been very supportive and welcoming to me as I start my career in the wonderful city of South Burlington. I look forward to meeting members of the community and making a difference here in the city.”
Officer Fay says he spent his childhood summers in Vermont on Lake Champlain with his family. His first choice was to serve the police department here in South Burlington. “One of the reasons I got into law enforcement is to continue my family’s tradition of public service, as my dad was a corrections officer for 25 years and my uncle is a police sergeant. They helped me to realize my passion for public service.”
