Lynn Police Department News

The tragic deaths of three children boarding a school bus in Rochester provides another opportunity to reminder drivers of Indiana laws regarding school bus stops. When approaching a school bus from any direction which is stopped with its flashing red lights activated and its stop arm extended, motorists are required to STOP, even on multiple lane highways. Motorists who are on a highway that is divided by a barrier or unimproved median (i.e. a concrete or cable barrier, or a grass median) are required to stop only if they are traveling the same direction as the school bus. If there is no unimproved median or barrier, then all lanes in all directions must stop. Disregarding a school bus stop arm is a serious violation and one that school bus drivers are quick to report. Violation of this law is a Class “A” infraction and is punishable by a maximum fine of up to $10,000. A person who operates a vehicle and who RECKLESSLY passes a school bus stopped on a roadway when the arm signal device specified in IC 9-21-12-13 is in the device's extended position commits a Class B misdemeanor, punishable up to 180 days in jail. However, the offense is a Class A misdemeanor, punishable up to 365 days in jail, if it causes bodily injury to a person.

WOW!! So this young lady came to the Lynn Police Department to explain how Officers actions helped change her life. Two years ago today on March 8th, 2016, Chief Fisher stopped her for speeding. During the investigation it was learned that her drivers license was suspended and that she was a HEROIN addict. She told Chief Fisher that she had just had a daughter and really wanted to get back to her. Officer Jones and Detective Puterbaugh arrived and during the course of the investigation Officers talked with her about her addiction was ruining her life and how she really needed to change her CHOICE of lifestyle if she wanted to be there for her daughter. She was cited and released on that day. She told us that she went home and spoke with her grandmother, which had raised her, and told her how sincere and nice the Officers were to her during that traffic stop and the words she heard from Officers really hit home. She stated that she had never had Officers treat her as well or talk with her they way Officers did that day and she realized that Officers are really out there that want to help. She came to the PD to thank those Officers for saving her life. She tells us that today, March 8th, 2018, marks her two year anniversary of being clean and sober from HEROIN and other street drugs. She also told us that she now has full custody of her daughter. It was an emotional reunion but this is what makes our job worth while. This is a true success story of an individual making a CHOICE of LIFE instead of Addiction. With the way the last few weeks and months have been, this was a huge blessing for us at Lynn Police Department.

The Boone County Sheriff's Department and the the family of Deputy Jacob Pickett are in our thoughts and prayers. RIP brother, we will take it from here!!
