In 1944 Sir Percy Sillitoe who had been her boss in Sheffield was made the Chief Constable of Kent and he employed de Vitre to lead the women's force. When she arrived she had two policewomen and the following year there were nearly 150.
She returned to the UK in 1933 and became the lead policewoman in Leicester taking over from Eileen Claire Sloane. de Vitre was able to create an essential role dealing with cases of indecent assault and child protection. This was reinforced by the 1933 Children and Young Persons Act which required a policewoman to be present with any under-age or female person who was detained. However, she did not become a sergeant until 1933. The following year she was able to organise a national convention of policewomen which attracted half the country's policewomen from outside London. This was 36 women from 26 constabularies who gathered in Leicester.
In 1928 she joined the police in Sheffield. This was helpful to her career as that constabulary had a more enthusiastic attitude to women in the force and she impressed the Chief constable. In 1931 she was appointed to lead and train women policewomen in Cairo. She assisted with the laws pertaining to brothels, prostitutes and drug dealing and in training.
