Rutland City Alderwoman Lisa Ryan has praise for Project VISION, the alliance between neighbors and police formed to tackle illegal drug abuse and attendant crime. Ryan says, “Project VISION has done a remarkable job, especially in the Northwest neighborhood of Rutland City, in that the police officers are really dedicated to going out into the community and into those neighborhoods to try and prevent crimes before they even occur.” Ryan serves as well as first vice president of the Rutland Area NAACP, “officially chartered in March of this year,” she says, “and we have been involved in promoting social and racial justice.” By day, Ryan works for BROC-Community Action in Southwestern Vermont, where she is program manager for Rutland County Community Justice Center. “We work with individuals coming out of incarceration and help them re-integrate back into the community to help them be successful while enhancing community safety.”
