Rutland Chooses Ex-Vermont State Police Head as Chief
The former head of the Vermont State Police has been chosen to be Rutland's new police chief.
James Baker had been serving as interim chief in Rutland when a committee charged with finding a permanent chief for the city recommended him for the job.
The Rutland Herald says the 13-member committee was unanimous in choosing Baker. The decision must be ratified by the Rutland Police Commission, but no opposition is expected.
Baker has served as interim chief since January. He was initially uninterested in the permanent job, but was persuaded to seek it by Rutland Mayor Christopher Louras and other officials.
Baker will replace former chief Anthony Bossi, who retired at the start of the year.
Baker retired from the state police in 2009.
