• Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department issued a clarification regarding a story Thursday involving the arrest of a sheriff’s deputy. In terms of “stand bys”, the sheriff’s department states that it does conduct stand bys in cases where a court has ordered the need based on safety concerns related to violence and the retrieval of property. ECSD will not respond to a home to pick up property without a court order. A court order eliminates issues for the department. The only instance ECSD will do a stand by without a court order is when investigating crimes of domestic violence and it would occur at the time of investigation. ECSD noted that in the incident of Officer Bill Long there was no court order to pick up property, in fact there was a protective order preventing Long from going to the home.
