Sheriff hosts open house todayNovember 09,2012The Rutland County Sheriff’s Department is hosting an open house at its new home on Grove Street in Rutland today.
The 4,800-square-foot former TV repair shop at 88 Grove St. was renovated this summer and Rutland Sheriff Stephen Benard moved into the two-story building about a month ago.
But the event today, which runs from 3 to 6 p.m., marks the first time that the new station has been open for public tours of the converted space.
Members of the public who attend will have an opportunity to see the building, meet officers and staffs, watch demonstrations of equipment and learn about services that the agency provides.
At 5 p.m. a contingent of local officials will be on-hand for a ribbon cutting at the site. Light refreshments will be available.MORE IN This Just InBALTIMORE — Chants of “no justice, no peace, no racist police” echoed through the streets of...
