Stowe Police Officers are available to provide a number of services to our residents and guests

Alarm Response - Stowe Police Department works with alarm and security companies to provide rapid response to home and business alarm systems.  Residents, second-home owners, and businesses can contact the department for more details.

Animal Control - Stowe Police Department's Animal Control Officer can assist with domestic and some wildlife issues.  For more information, see the Animal Control section of the Stowe Police Web Site.

Property Watch - On a special-request basis, officers can pay additional attention to homes for vacationing residents or can assist businesses that have a specific short-term need for special attention.  The department can also provide contact information for professional property management and security companies for long-term needs.

Fingerprints - For those needing fingerprinting for job applications, security clearances, or other requirements Stowe police officers can provide fingerprints  on Monday mornings at 9 AM.  There is a nominal fee of $15 for fingerprinting.  Call the department during business hours for more details.

VIN Checks - The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles requires a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) verification for cars that are brought into Vermont.  Stowe police officers can come to your business or residence to perform a VIN check during business hours and on weekends by request.   Forms are available at the police department or individuals can request that an officer bring a form.  There is no charge for this service.

Car Seat Inspection -  Parents can bring their car seats to Stowe Police Department where our NHTSA-trained Officer McHugh will ensure that they are installed and adjusted correctly.  Call us for an appointment.
      For maximum child passenger safety, parents and caregivers need to remember the following:
       1.  Use rear facing infant seats in the back seat from birth to at least one year of age and at least 20 lbs.
       2.  Use forward facing toddler seats in the back seat from age one and 20 lbs. to about age four and 40 lbs.
       3.  Use booster seats in the back seat from about age four to at least age eight unless the child is 4'9" or taller.
       4.  Use safety belts in the back seat at age eight or older of if taller than 4'9".
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, approximately 7,500 lives have been saved by the proper use of child restraints during the past 20 years.
