Rutland City Police Department
Change of Command Coming to the Rutland City Police by End of Year.Statement from Lawrence G. Jensen, Chair Rutland City Police Commission.October 21, 2014, Rutland, VT: The Rutland City Police Commission has voted to accept the resignation of Chief James W. Baker effective at the end of 2014. Chief Baker has accepted a position in Washington, D.C. with the International Association of Chiefs of Police as the Director of Law Enforcement and Support.On behalf of the Police Commission, I want to express my gratitude, and that of the entire City, to Chief Baker for all he has achieved in the nearly three years he has been here. He built a very strong Department dedicated to being a leading example of informed, data driven law enforcement. He leaves us with a Vision, Mission, a set of shared values and a definitive strategic plan to help us keep on the path we have adopted. Project VISION has engaged the entire community in our goals.We all have to recognize that the Rutland City Police Department is not one person, no matter how important that one person is. It is over fifty women and men doing their job with dedication and skill. I am very confident that the citizens of our City can count on these people to continue to do their job with the same focus and drive that they have demonstrated over the past three years. They deserve our support during this time of transition.The Rutland City Police Commission has the authority to appoint an Acting Chief of Police. Having said that, the Police Commission adopted a policy which prescribes a very specific process for selecting a new Chief. It provides for the establishment of a Search Committee which includes the Police Commission, two Aldermen, the Mayor, a member of the Police Union and a member of the Police Department Leadership. It also includes three members of the community, one selected by the Police Commission, one by the Aldermen and one by the Mayor. The Search Committee will begin its work as soon as possible. Its first job will be to select an Interim Chief to direct the Department while the search for a permanent Chief is conducted.As the group gathered on Monday night to hear Professor Kennedy learned, our Police Department is now providing an example of how other Police Departments in cities our size can approach the problem of heroin addiction. The Police Commission is committed to continuing this direction and finding the strongest leader we can to continue this effort.

Valley Regional Hospital would like us to remind the public of the “active shooter” drill to be held this week. Early Wednesday afternoon, October 22, Claremont residents and visitors should not be alarmed when several police cars, fire trucks and ambulances converge on Valley Regional Hospital on Elm Street. Coordinating with all local emergency response agencies, Valley Regional Hospital will hold an “active shooter” drill to simulate a person with a gun entering one of Valley Regional’s clinical areas. Several actors will portray shooting victims, fully made up with fake blood, with a variety of injuries. Claremont police officers will locate and attempt to subdue the shooter and victims will be transported to Valley Regional’s emergency department for treatment.
- If you were in the Perkinsville area today and have returned home to find you are "missing" a rather distinct item, we may have what you are looking for as it was turned in to our PD. Call 802-885-2113 if you realize it's yours. Please NOTE: It is in secure storage and only accessible by a Sgt or Detective. Tonight would be your lucky night...we have a Sgt on duty. Otherwise Detectives are on Mon-Fri 8 am to 4 pm.
- The members of the Springfield Police Department wish to express their sincerest condolences to the Family and Members of the Rutland County Sheriff's Office for their loss. May the peace that comes from the memories shared comfort you now and in the days ahead.
It is with deep regret that I inform you of the passing of Sergeant Jason Richard Allen. Sgt. Allen fought a courageous battle with cancer that started in December 2013. Throughout that battle, Sgt Allen remained strong and fought with the bravery of a warrior. He lost that battle at 2215 on October 18, 2014, but not before seeing as many family, friends and fellow law enforcement professionals as he possibly could. Sgt. Allen started his career at the Rutland County Sheriff's Office in November of 2002. He was promoted to Deputy 1/C on February 06, 2009, Then to Corporal and Sergeant, becoming a valued member of the Command Staff at R.C.S.D.. Throughout his career, and his life, he touched everyone that he came in contact with in a positive way. His smile was infectious, as was his personality and demeanor. Please keep his family, his children Anna and Maliea, and his soul mate Danielle in your thoughts and prayers. Arrangements are pending, and will be published when the schedule is established. Sheriff Stephen P. Benard P.O. Box 303 Rutland, VT 05702 802-775-8002 (Office) 802-775-1794 (Fax) "Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do."
