Vermont’s former Public Safety Commissioner Kerry Sleeper is going to start work later this month for a Virginia company that focuses on homeland security and other public issues.
Sleeper says he’ll be able to spend most of his time working for CNA Corp. from his Jericho home.
His job will be to look for ways to improve the way the Department of Homeland Security deals with state and local agencies across the country.
Sleeper’s last day with the state was on Monday. He began working as a state trooper in 1977.
Sleeper will be replaced at Public Safety by Burlington Police Chief Tom Tremblay, who will start next week.
