RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - A former Vermont State Police trooper who has worked at the Rutland Police Department for the last year is going to be the city’s interim police chief.

The Rutland Police Commission voted Monday to make David Covell the acting chief following the departure of Chief James Baker, who leaves at the end of the month.

The Rutland Herald (https://bit.ly/1AbkTbI ) reports that Covell is the former head of the Vermont State Police detective bureau.

Covell was hired in Rutland in December 2013 as a special officer. In February he became one of three commanders in the department. He has handled the operation and oversight of the department’s detective division.

The police commission’s vote was unanimous.

The commission is now going to turn its attention to finding a permanent police chief.
