Rutland City Police under investigation

Posted: Updated:
RUTLAND, Vt. -

A probe at the police department in Rutland will be handled by the Barre City Police.

The attorney general's office asked Barre to handle the criminal investigation at the Rutland City Police Department, since there's no conflict of interest. A former Rutland officer, who is now a state trooper, is suing the department, alleging racial discrimination and employment law violations among the department's top brass.

Barre's Police Chief Tim Bombardier tells WCAX News he's assigned a detective to the investigation.
