We are saddened to hear that Boone County Sheriff’s Deputy Jacob Pickett will not survive the injuries sustained when he was shot earlier this morning attempting to apprehend a fleeing suspect. Please keep the Pickett family, including his two young children, along with the Boone County Sheriff's Office in your thoughts and prayers. Deputy Pickett, a Brownsburg Indiana native and 2002 graduate of Brownsburg High School, has been employed by the Boone County Sheriff's Office since July of 2015. Prior to his work with BCSO he served as a deputy for the Tipton County Sheriff's Department from November of 2013 until July of 2015. Deputy Pickett also served as a jailer at the Marion County Jail from 2010 until 2013. Deputy Pickett was the lead K9 handler for the Boone County Sheriff's Office and patrolled with his partner Brick for more than 2 years. Deputy Jacob Pickett and his family continue to selflessly serve even after his fatal wound by donating his organs. #WarriorsAreNotForgotten

A week after the massacre at a Florida high school that left 17 people dead, the sheriff in charge of investigating the shooting had ordered deputies to carry rifles on school grounds "from this point forward." "Our deputies who are qualified and trained will be carrying rifles on school grounds from this point forward," Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said during a news conference Wednesday — one week after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Israel said the policy was implemented Wednesday morning and deputies will be required to keep their rifles locked in their police vehicle when they are not being carried. So what do you think? Would it be offensive to see officers at your area school carrying rifles or would you support it?
