Rutland City Police Department
Today the Rutland City Police Department along with its many partners took the next step in the Drug Market Intervention process. Seven individuals who were cited into court for drug charges were “Called In” following the High Point, N.C. DMI model introduced to the community during training in March, 2014. The following persons were arraigned in court: Amanda Bartlett, Tanya Brace, Toban Crosby, Destiny Garrow, Jeffrey Haynes, Evangeline Theodorou, and Annie Thompson. All were selected for this “Call In” opportunity to help break the cycle of drugs in their lives and in our neighborhoods. Each person was allowed to bring an influential person along with them to the “Call In” meetings to help guide them during the proceedings and support them in their future. In the first meeting the group met with the Rutland Treatment Court Administrator and a representative of Rutland Mental Health where the group was told of the services available to them, to help with any obstacles that may stand in their way of successfully graduating from Treatment Court. The second meeting with members of law enforcement including the City of Rutland’s Chief of Police James Baker, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jim Gelber, Vermont Assistant Attorney General Ultan Doyle and members of the law enforcement community. During this meeting, the group was addressed while pictures of other defendants who are awaiting trial on federal charges from the same investigations hung on from the walls. The message delivered was that the time had come for each person to make a clear decision about their future; the Rutland City community would no long tolerate their criminal behavior of past. All were told that there was to be no mistake that things were going to be easy. If they accepted the offered help and mended their ways not only would their lives be better, but that the lives of their families would benefit. An offer would be made at arraignment that if they succeeded in completing drug court then their initial charges would be amended to lesser charges. All were warned that under the DMI process the supervision by the law enforcement community would be omnipresent, a direct departure from practices of the past, and each could expect frequent check-ins by police officers and service providers to help with their compliance to Treatment Court conditions. After these meetings the group appeared in court to be arraigned on their respective charges and receive the official offer of Treatment court.
