vail-2Hartford, Windsor County, Vermont, September 16, 2016 —- We are pleased to announce the graduation and return of Major Braedon Vail from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s prestigious National Academy for law enforcement executives in Quantico, Virginia. 

Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy Program consists of ten weeks of advanced investigative, management and wellness schooling for selected police executives having proven professional records within their agencies.  All of the courses are accredited by the University of Virginia, who administrates the crediting process from an office on the FBI Academy Campus.  Instruction is provided by FBI Academy instructional staff, Special Agents, and other staff members holding advanced degrees, many of whom are recognized internationally in their fields of expertise.

 Since joining the Hartford Police Department in 1993, Major Vail has served as a Patrol Sergeant, Lieutenant, Operations Commander, and most recently as Commander of the Support Services Division.  Prior to his career at the Hartford Police Department, Major Vail served as a Police Officer with the Town of Hardwick and the Town of Waterbury.  He was the 2010 President of the Vermont Police Association.  Major Vail graduated from Champlain College during 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree and is currently completing coursework towards his Master Degree.

 After enjoying time with his family, Major Vail will return to duty this coming week where he will resume responsibility for the daily supervision of the Support Services Division.  Major Vail may be reached at 802-478-1939, orbvail@hartford-vt.org.
