Tabor, Pawlet, Pittsfield, Poultney, Proctor, Shrewsbury, Sudbury, Tinmouth, Wallingford, Wells, West Haven, West Rutland, and also the Windsor county town of Plymouth. We also provide assistance as requested to Brandon, Castleton, Fair Haven, Killington, Pittsford, Rutland City, and Rutland Town police departments. This coverage is augmented by our strong relationship with the Rutland County and Windsor County sheriffs' offices.
The Rutland County population base is about 59,000 full-time residents. This does not include the seasonal residents attracted to the area for activities in all seasons, including sightseeing, hunting, boating and skiing or riding. Killington Resort, located in Killington, is the largest ski area in the Northeast and sees a dramatic population boom starting in the fall and returning to normal in the spring. During the late spring, the population in the western part of the county increases, with the warmer weather and activities at Lake Bomoseen, Lake St. Catherine and Lake Hortonia.
The Rutland Barracks is home to the 20 uniformed troopers, four patrol commanders, two auxiliary troopers (part-time), two administrative clerks and one station commander.
The Rutland Barracks regularly conducts outreach through community groups, selectboards and other public forums to discuss local concerns and relate important information to community members. If you or your group would like to be part of our community outreach effort, please contact the station commander.
