The Montpelier Police Department encourages parents to keep a close watch on young children in order to prevent them from getting separated in the crowd. In the event that a parent and child become separated, they should notify police and then go to the public safety/information tent for re-unification assistance.

Everyone’s safety is our priority and the police ask that if you see something that appears suspicious to let the nearest police officer know right away.
