Change of Command

On September 28, 2018 We had a Change of Command in the City of South Burlington

September 28, 2018

Please welcome Chief Shawn Burke

The City of South Burlington welcomes Chief Shawn Burke.

Shawn comes from a family history of Police Officers. His dad retired from the NYPD after 20 yrs. and retiring as a Detective Sergeant. With his father being a detective Shawn always had policing in the back of his mind but never imagined himself becoming a chief, until later in his career at the Burlington Police Department.  Shawn lives in Milton with his wife Stephyne and their two sons, Kayden and Kenyon. He is eager to learn about the community’s expectation of their police force and how we can further refine our operations to meet and exceed those expectations.

One hard thing that Shawn believes he faces in his new role, is recruiting qualified officers to fill the vacancies created by the retirement of tenured officers.  However, he is very excited about leading the professional and committed staff of the South Burlington Police Department at a time of uncertainty in American policing. Many communities are at odds with their police force. South Burlington embraces and supports their police, continued community policing efforts in line with the community’s expectations will be crucial in maintaining what South Burlington enjoys today.

In 2014, the City of South Burlington, under the leadership of its Energy Committee (SBEC), joined a competition called the Georgetown University Energy Prize (GUEP).

During the two-year measurement period, SBEC hosted or participated in over 50 events, laying the foundation for ongoing progress.  South Burlington residents took action and are now saving over $750,000 in energy costs per year as a result – and continued savings will lead to more than $5 million in their pockets over time.
