Rutland Gets Domestic Violence Funding

Print More

The city of Rutland is getting $200,000 in federal funds to help reduce domestic violence killings.

The Rutland Herald reports the city is one of just a dozen across the nation slated to receive funding under a new Department of Justice initiative.

But police and domestic violence prevention advocates believe the award has more to do with an ongoing community intervention initiative, rather than with the number of domestic violence cases in Rutland.

No homicide related to domestic violence has been committed in the city for more than a decade.
