Office of the Director
Division Director: Colonel William Elovirta
The Enforcement and Safety Division is comprised of a contingent of sworn law enforcement officers and non-sworn civilian staff. The Division has three sections, the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Section, the Investigative Section, and the Administrative Support Section. Below is an overview of the function of each of the respective sections.
Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Section
Throughout Vermont, trained officers inspect commercial vehicles and their drivers for compliance with state and federal motor carrier safety regulations. Inspections are conducted at interstate weigh stations as well as along many of the state’s frequently traveled rural roadways.
Chief Inspector: Captain Scott Davidson
The primary focus of the Investigative Unit is to regulate, monitor, and investigate illegal or questionable activities relating to licensing, registration and title fraud, dealer and inspection regulations, and general law enforcement support services. The Education & Safety Unit is primarily responsible for regulating, licensing and monitoring of commercial driver training schools, third party testing programs, training and licensing School Bus Driver Training Instructors, and Pupil Transportation Safety laws and issues. In addition, this Section is responsible for research and analysis of many other highway safety-related issues.

The Administrative Support Section provides support to all units within the Enforcement & Safety Division.
