Patrol & Enforcement

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office is actively involved in patrols throughout Franklin County. The County of Franklin is approximately 704 square miles in size and is located in the northwest corner of Vermont. Franklin County is bordered completely on the west by Lake Champlain and on the north by Canada. The population is approximately 50,000 residents and we have 15 townships located within the county. Interstate 89 runs from the Canadian Border through the length of Franklin County into neighboring Chittenden County.

The Sheriff’s Office presently has 12 full time deputies and 19 part time deputies. Deputies presently patrol in seven of the 15 townships by contractural agreements, but deputies can be seen actively throughout the county. The Sheriff’s Office has 13 fully equipped Ford Crown Victorias, three 4WD vehicles, three unmarked units, two Arctic Cat Snowmobiles and two All Terrain Vehicles.

Deputies rotate in and out of different townships on a two week cycle. Deputies can also be found assisting other local municipalities or the Vermont State Police in and around the county. Franklin County is a rural area and law enforcement within the county work closely in serving the residents.
