The Rutland County population base is 63,641 full time residents. This does not include the seasonal residents that are attracted to the area for the four season activities (site seeing, hunting, boating and skiing). Killington Ski Area, 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, 4 Patrol Commanders, 2 Auxiliary Troopers (part-time), 2 Administrative Clerks and 1 Station Commander.
The Rutland Barracks regularly conducts outreach through community groups, select boards and other public forums to discuss local concerns and relate important information to community members.
