Chittenden County, with a population of approximately 146,000 people, is Vermont’s largest county and the most innovative in criminal justice programing. In addition to its active justice centers, Chittenden County has a unique pre-trial charging program known as the Rapid Intervention Community Court that keeps offenders out of the judicial system, a post-arraignment referral program for treatment, and fully developed and evidenced-based drug and mental health dockets.
