Policies, Administrative Directives, Interim Procedures & Interim Revision Memos
Administrative Directives outline procedural guidelines and expectations of staff that comply with Department rules and policy, correctional best practice, and relevant Vermont and federal law. Administrative Directives contain a brief statement of policy.
Directives marked "Redacted 'A' for public use" are security-sensitive and exempt from public disclosure. The security-sensitive information has been redacted from the posted version, leaving the rest of the document accessible to the public.
Administrative Procedures Act (APA) Rules
An APA Rule implements or interprets law or policy and has been adopted as required by the Vermont Administrative Procedures Act. APA Rules have the force of law unless amended or revised, or unless a court determines otherwise.
