Our Mission

"THE VERNON POLICE DEPARTMENT IS COMMITTED TO EXCELLENCE AND THE DELIVERY OF PROFESSIONAL POLICE SERVICES WHILE PROVIDING ITS MEMBERS WITH THE EQUIPMENT AND TRAINING NEEDED TO SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE THE MISSION."

The first organized police department in Vernon, CT was established in 1890 and was known as the Rockville Police Department. At the time of its creation, only four men made up the force. Law enforcement in rural Vernon was the responsibility of local constables.


In 1965, the Rockville Police Department and the Vernon constables consolidated and the Vernon Police Department was established. Today, over fifty highly trained officers are dedicated to providing the best service and protection to the citizens of Vernon.
