RUTLAND, Vt. — The Rutland Police Department is planning to combine two neighborhood outreaches with a meeting next week.

Residents from two neighborhoods are invited to gather Thursday evening to meet with the department at Rutland Regional Medical Center. The Rutland Herald reports officers will give a presentation on crime statistics and the department’s overall strategy.

The meeting is part of a series the department is holding around the city. Police Sgt. Keith Lorman says a big concern at a prior meeting involved people failing to stop at a neighborhood stop sign.

Lorman says the initiative is an earlier plan that had fallen by the wayside before being revived.
