The VERITAS array of Cherenkov telescopes, designed for the detection of gamma-rays in the 100 GeV-10 TeV energy range, performs dark matter searches over a wide variety of targets. VERITAS continues to carry out focused observations of dwarf spheroidal galaxies in the Local Group, of the Milky Way galactic center, and of Fermi-LAT unidentified sources. This report presents our extensive observations of these targets, new statistical techniques, and current constraints on dark matter particle physics derived from these observations.
