Jennifer Frank is the new sergeant of the Norwich Police Department. Police Chief Doug Robinson introduced her to the Selectboard and public at that Board’s meeting on March 14.

In her remarks at that meeting, viewed on CATV, the Sergeant exuded enthusiasm for community policing. She encouraged residents to invite her to attend programs and events, and then added, to hearty laughter, even if they have ”nothing to do with cops!”

Ms. Frank comes to Norwich from the Windsor Police Department where she was the School Resource Officer, as well as a detective.  During her three years there, she was “the unanimous choice to be the Windsor Police Department’s 'Officer of the Year'” in 2016 and 2017, states the Windsor Department's Facebook page. She also received the American Legion’s “Law Officer of the Year” for the State of Vermont in 2017, being “the first ever-female officer to receive this award in the State of Vermont”, according to Vermont Journal.

Sergeant Frank has doctorate in Educational Leadership from Plymouth State University and is a “mom of two”, she told the Selectboard that night. 

While with the Windsor Police Department, school children developed a fascination with then Detective Frank’s hair bun. The "Bun" met Tom Brady, went shopping, and celebrated Halloween. Check out the Facebook fan page: Dr. Detective Frank's Bun
