A former Chicago cop named police chief in Montpelier is believed to be the first ever black police chief in the State of Vermont. He’s coming from a New Mexico city where, as police chief, he clashed with apparently dysfunctional city leadership.
"Peete first served in the U.S. Air Force, working his way up to region manager of the Office of Special Investigations. He then served as a police officer in Chicago, following in his parents’ footsteps, and held multiple positions there before taking the job as police chief in New Mexico. He was hired in April 2018, but resigned in November after he submitted a whistleblower letter alleging the city was “dysfunctional and experiencing low morale and confidence in its leadership,” according to published reports.

Fraser said he dug deeply into the matter and “came away even more convinced that Brian Peete is the right choice for Montpelier.”"
