Rutland City Police Department & Project VISION Intern Program

Rutland City Police Department & Project VISION Intern Program

Have you heard about the Rutland City Police Department / Project VISION intern program?
The 2016 spring semester starts our third year of the new program. We have our largest group of interns working this semester in the VISION Center located on the second floor of the Police Department.

We have two College of St Joseph students, who will continue helping to analyze Rutland City burglary data; two Castleton University students, one student will be helping on data analysis of our collected data from our Data Driven Approach to Crime and Traffic Safety (DDACTS) project conducted in October-December 2015, and a second student working a research project on Autism Awareness for Law Enforcement; and a Rutland High School student working on developing a Youth Project Vision club within the High School.

In the previous two years we have hosted students from Castleton University, Community College of Vermont, College of St. Joseph, and Stonehill College in Ma. The students have worked on projects including the burglary reduction analysis which has been an ongoing project resulting in presentations to command staff, patrol officers, and the public along with the development of a home safety brochure. Another project resulted in a digitized table of city addresses with corresponding sector assignment for future applications and mapping. A third project resulted in research into future website development and content. We have also received adult volunteer (Intern) help from the community that resulted in initial research for the DDACTS project.

As you can see the Rutland City Police Department and Project VISION Intern program is giving students up close and hands on experience on real world law enforcement projects.

We will be posting for the summer internships soon on this page as well as our collaborative college websites.
