The South Burlington Business Association (SBBA) hosted its highly anticipated fall member meeting on November 7, 2023, at the Alpine Shop.
This event brought together a group of SBBA members to discuss critical issues affecting the local community and to introduce a new addition to the South Burlington Police Department.
During the meeting, Chief of Police, Shawn Burke, addressed SBBA members, providing valuable insights into public safety and the growing concern of theft in the area. Chief Burke highlighted the factors contributing to this issue, emphasizing the importance of community cooperation and crime prevention measures.
The membership also had the privilege of meeting the new Deputy Chief of the South Burlington Police Department, Sean Briscoe. Deputy Chief Briscoe brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the role, having served the community of Saratoga Spring, NY for many years.
