Chief's Message


It is my honor to serve as Chief of Police in the Town of Edinburgh, a community with a rich history and an exciting future.

As Chief of Police my vision for our organization is to provide productive, professional, and purposeful police services, continually striving to become better tomorrow than we are today. I am committed to creating innovative approaches to delivering police service.

We will strive to use technology in our crime fighting strategy because criminals have adapted technology to break the law and we are responding with technology to enforce the law.

Opportunities to gain efficiencies and improve service through shared services will be explored with our regional law enforcement partners. In essence, we will be open to new ways of doing business in order that we may better serve this wonderful community.

Most importantly will be our renewed focus upon the department's community policing roots as we recognize the importance of our ongoing partnerships with the people we serve. Providing police service is more than reactionary policing; it is civic engagement coupled with proactive innovation that will allow us to serve you well.

Regardless of whether you are a lifelong resident here or just visiting our community to shop, eat or relax we strive to deliver to you the services that will make your experience a safe one.

I welcome your input and feedback as to how we are performing and I would suggest that you drop me an email, give me a call, or even stop by the department's station should you have something to discuss.

Sincerely,

David Mann


History

 

Edinburgh Police Department, circa early 1900's, located at Thompson and Holland Streets. The prisoner bars located in the background were handmade by a blacksmith whose shop was located at St. Rd. 252 and Holland Street and have been used continually since that date.

The Edinburgh Police Department was established in 1853 when the town of Edinburgh was incorporated. The first police station was located at the corner of Holland & Thompson, the site of the present city parking lot. Before portable radios were available, lights on the top of poles located at Main Cross and Holland and Main Cross and Walnut were activated by the dispatcher. This alerted the officer that there was a call. Since World War II, Military Police from Camp Atterbury have accompanied local officers when military personnel were in town on overnight passes. This policy continued into the late 1980's. Edinburgh has a colorful past which demonstrated the variety of people who have chosen to make their homes here. The police department has always endeavored to serve and protect the residents.

May of 1954, the Edinburg Police Department moved from 113 S Holland Street to 107 S Holland Street adjacent to the Utility office.  News Article 

 

May of 2002 the Police Department moved to their new location at 200 S. Main Street 

The Edinburgh Police Department EPD 2002continues to update in an attempt to keep up with the fast pace of technology. With the help of the Johnson County Commissioners and the Johnson County Consortium, which Edinburgh is a part of, Edinburgh has the state of the art digital radio system. In November 2003, Edinburgh Police was brought on line with the Johnson Countywide computer system which allows all agencies to see what the other is doing and who they are dealing with in an attempt to apprehend criminals who are going into multiple communities committing crimes.

In mid 2004 Edinburgh Police joined the rest of Johnson County with the installation of laptop computers in the police cars where the officers may be dispatched wirelessly and eventually silently. The wireless communication enables officers in the field to respond to calls and respond over the laptop the disposition of the calls. The wireless link is the fist in Indiana to be solely on the 800 mhz digital radio towers in lieu of using cellular towers at a high cost to the county. In early 2005 Johnson County officers will be online with the state Indiana Data Communication System (IDACS) where officers will have mobile access to bureau of motor vehicle files and driver license files, also officers will have access to the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) to search for wants and warrants. Previous to the countywide computer, the criminals slipped through the cracks and/or detectives and officers had to call other agencies to find out the information which is not at their fingertips. Edinburgh's use of laptop computers in the police cruisers, which will allow dispatchers to send calls by computer and reduce the radio traffic that sometimes is monitored by the criminals again giving police the upper hand.

 
The multi-million dollar funding comes from "911 telephone fees charged to telephones throughout the county and a Hoosier Safe-T State Grant. A Federal Homeland Security Grant through the Johnson County Emergency Management Director Forrest "Tug Sutton has assisted Edinburgh in obtaining a new Caterpillar diesel generator for the police department so when the power goes out, the police and fire dispatch will never be without power as in the past. The system is eventually supposed to connect the entire state together as a statewide law enforcement network. Hopefully when a disaster strikes, whether it is weather related or otherwise, Edinburgh will be ready with a radio system capable of communicating with multiple agencies unlike in the past where we were unable to talk to other agencies because of a frequency barrier.

Line Locations

Call Before You Dig!

Edinburgh Power & Light is a member of the Indiana811. This system is responsible for the coordination of underground line locations statewide. To request a line location call

You must give three working days notice to receive the line location before you dig.

Street Lights

Edinburgh Power & Light will install additional street lights on public streets at no cost to the customer if a traffic study deems there is a need for it. These installations are subject to various qualifying standards. For more information contact Edinburgh Power & Light at 812-526-3514 extension 1.

Security Lights

For a one-time installation fee and a monthly service charge, Edinburgh Power & Light will install a security light(s) at your residence or place of business. The installation fee varies depending upon the complexity of the installation.

The monthly service charge is:

  • 175 watt - $6.00
  • 400 watt - $10.50
  • 1000 watt - $30.00

To order a guard light, request a quote for installation, or for any additional information, contact 812-526-3514 Extension 1.

Tree Trimming

Edinburgh Power & Light must keep trees and shrubs trimmed to ensure reliable electric service and to maintain industry-required clearances around electric distribution and transmission lines.

EP&L offers a "Tree for Tree" program, allowing the customer to have a tree removed including the stump and replaced with a new tree planted away from the electric lines. This program is offered only to those that have trees in the EP&L primary lines.

To reduce the occurrence of trees and shrubs in rights-of-way and easements, we encourage property owners to learn more about their property and avoid planting any new vegetation in these areas. The following are links to helpful information on tree placement, selection and planting.

 

If a tree located on private property has branches encroaching on a power line, EP&L will trim away the obstruction at the customer's request. To request this service or for additional information on tree trimming, contact 812-526-3514 extension 1.

If you see a tree touching a power line or smoking, don't touch it! The electric lines are energized and can be dangerous. Call 812-526-3514 extension 1 and service personnel will be dispatched immediately to remove the tree branch.

Protective Orders

How do I obtain a protective order?

Protective orders are cost-free to anyone who is a victim of domestic or family violence, stalking or a sex offense.Because this is a civil proceeding, the Prosecutor's Office is not involved in the issuance of such orders. Rather, a person must go to the Circuit court clerk's office in your respective county, where he or she will fill out the paperwork to be review and ruled on by a judge.

For the judge to approve a protective order, the petitioner must allege that the respondent has attempted to cause, threatened to cause or is causing physical harm to the petitioner, or that the respondent is actually placing the petitioner in fear of physical harm.

What is a protective order and how far-reaching is it?

A protective order is a civil court order that restricts the contact certain people may have with the "petitioner" (the person requesting the order). The person restricted by the order is called the "respondent."

A protective order requires one or more individuals over the age of 18 to refrain from directly or indirectly contacting the petitioner and from threatening, abusing or harassing any member of the petitioner's household. The judge can create various exceptions, or modifications, as conditions of the protective order. For example, if the petitioner requests, a judge may create a modification of the protective order that would permit contact between the parties only for purposes of child visitation.

A judge can order a number of conditions as part of the protective order. These conditions include, but are not limited to: ordering a respondent to vacate a residence, pay child support or not to possess firearms. If the petitioner requests that the respondent be prohibited from having firearms, a hearing is required before the court can grant such a request. If the respondent receives notice of the hearing, even if he or she is not present, then the court can issue an order prohibiting the respondent from having any firearms.

A protective order is entirely separate from any criminal matter.

What if a divorce is involved?

If a divorce is pending, the application for the protective order should be applied for by the petitioner, and evaluated by the judge, in the court in which the divorce is pending.

Why do you suggest I get a protective order?

Protective orders enable law enforcement agencies to intervene at the earliest indications of threatening, harassing or otherwise violent behavior occurs. Unfortunately, isolated, threatening acts, such as walking in front of an ex-spouse's home at three o'clock in the morning, dressed in black and carrying a knife, or walking up to an ex-girlfriend at her job and stating an intent to kill her, are not offenses which individually constitute crimes in the State of Indiana. Therefore, absent a protective order, if someone were to report such conduct to the police, no legal recourse would be available. However, were such threatening acts to occur in the face of an active protective order prohibiting all contact, abuse and harassment, then law enforcement officers would be able to make an arrest.

May I request additions to the protective order?

Upon request, the judge may make additions to a protective order. Depending upon the circumstances involved, the judge may stipulate any of the following:

Eviction of the respondent from a residence shared by the petitioner. Unless the protective order specifically calls for an eviction, it is not an eviction notice. If both are listed on a lease or mortgage, the respondent cannot be evicted until the permanent protective order hearing.

An order may be issued for the local Sheriff's Department to accompany the petitioner to the shared residence to collect emergency belongings.

An order may be issued for the respondent to pay child support or maintenance payments to the petitioner if the petitioner and respondent are married and have not filed for divorce.

The petitioner, respondent or both may be required to attend counseling, including domestic violence education.

Are there age requirements?

Anyone may request a protective order if they have been physically hurt or threatened.A parent or guardian must file on behalf of anyone under 18 years of age as long as he or she lives in the same household. Under certain circumstances a protective order may be issued against a juvenile. There are no hard and fast rules regarding protective orders against juveniles and it will be up to a judge to decide if one is needed.

How long does the protective order remain in effect?

It depends. The duration period of a protective order is usually two years. However, the judge has the discretion to issue a protective order for as little time or as much time as he or she determines is appropriate. The petitioner can renew the protective order near the time that the order is scheduled to expire. Please note there is a one-month grace period to renew and if more time than this passes the petitioner will have to start the entire application process over again. A protective order may only be renewed one time. After the one renewal, the petitioner may reapply for a new protective order.

What are the limitations of protective orders?

The most recent studies indicate that filing for protective orders actually decreases violence in the overwhelming majority of cases. Although protective orders are extremely helpful in curbing many forms of violence and preliminary stalking behavior, they are not bulletproof shields. Therefore, it is EXTREMELY important that when obtaining a protective order, that a petitioner seek the advice of an advocate regarding safety planning and other resources within the community that will be able to provide assistance, just in case.

What happens if the order is violated?

If an individual violates the protective order, the person who is protected by the order may file for contempt of court (civil proceeding), or seek the filing of criminal charges ranging from Invasion of Privacy to major felony charges, depending on the severity of the offense.

Indiana’s Child Restraint Law:

All children under the age of 8 must be properly restrained in a child safety seat or booster seat according to the child restraint system manufacturer’s instructions. Many parents are confused about the law, so troopers want to help explain the proper and legal way to restrain their children.

  • Children under the age of one-year and less than 20 lbs. MUST be restrained in a rear-facing child safety seat. Many newer seats will restrain a child rear-facing up to 30-35 lbs. Troopers encourage parents to keep their children rear-facing as long as possible.
  • Children that are at least one-year old and 20 lbs. may be restrained in a forward-facing child safety seat with an internal harness system.
  • Children at least 30 lbs. may use a booster seat, but troopers encourage parents to keep their children restrained in a forward-facing seat until at least 40 lbs.
  • Indiana law requires all children under the age of eight to use a child restraint system in accordance with the child restraint system manufacturer’s instruction, which are based upon the child’s height and weight. The child restraint system normally used by children in this age group is the booster seat.
  • All children under the age of 16 must be properly restrained either by using a seat belt or a child restraint system, to include a booster seat.

Indiana State Police would like to remind parents and others who transport children the following safety tips:

  • Child safety seats must be properly secured to the vehicles seat belt or LATCH system and should not move side to side or forward more than one-inch.
  • Children should stay rear-facing until one-year of age and 20 lbs.
  • The retainer clip that connects the two shoulder harness straps must be kept at the child’s armpit level.
  • Harness straps must be kept snug.
