    KILLINGTON — The Killington Police Department has added a second part-time officer.

    Cheri McDermott has been named as the newest member of the town’s municipal force. McDermott comes to Killington from Castleton, where she has been a police officer since 2005.

    McDermott has worked in law enforcement since 2001 when she joined the Rutland County Sheriff’s Department. Prior to that, she worked for three years as the loss prevention manager for one of Rutland’s major retailers. McDermott also served for four years in the U.S. Coast Guard. She is a graduate of Community College of Vermont, and received her full-time police officer certification from Vermont Police Academy.

    The new officer position adds approximately 10 more hours of weekly patrol coverage to the town. Since transitioning from a constable department to a municipal police department, the Killington Police Department now consists of a police chief and two part-time officers. Vermont State Police continue to provide patrols when the department is not on duty.

    McDermott begins work in March.
