RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - Rutland police say a study found the number of calls for service in the Vermont city dropped almost 25 percent in the first six months of this year compared to 2013.

Police Chief James Baker says they’re still working to make sure the numbers are correct and if so what caused the drop.

Baker says burglary and larceny reports are down 2 percent, but drug complaints were up.

Baker tells The Rutland Herald (https://bit.ly/1Ab6D4z ) the study showed an increase in calls for the same six-month period from 2012 to 2013, but the reliability of the number isn’t as great as it is for 2013.

He says he’ll release the report once the numbers have been verified, which he expects to take about a week.
