ADDISON – The Vermont Sheriffs' Association appreciates the courage and efforts of the people involved in the investigation regarding Sheriff Peter Newton. We are grateful to have a system of justice that pursues allegations made against a law enforcement officer that works to hold them accountable. The Vermont Sheriffs' Association will offer all support for the continuity of operations to the Addison County Sheriff's Office, the High Bailiff through his role, the employees of the department, and the community of Addison County as the administration of justice follows its course. We refer all further comments to the prosecutor and Newton's attorney.
