An unspecified number of Williston Police Department personnel have been asked to meet with the Vermont Attorney General’s Office, Williston Town Manager Rick McGuire confirmed Tuesday.

“I can confirm that there are some employees that are being interviewed by the attorney general’s office, and the interviews are in response to a complaint that was filed,” McGuire said.

McGuire declined to elaborate on the scope of the inquiry or the nature of the complaint.

“While the complaint is under investigation, I can’t comment,” he said. “Once the investigation has been completed, I’d be happy to release any of the reports or documents that we’re legally entitled to release.”

Williston Police Chief Todd Shepard, reached by phone Monday, declined to comment and referred all inquiries to the town manager’s office.

The attorney general’s office also declined to comment.
