Escort Prompts Sheriff’s Ruling
VINTON — The* recent episode of providing a police escort for a Waterloo woman to Iowa City because it was mistakenly believed she was about to have a Ila by, has triggered a response from Benton county Sheriff Kenneth Popenhagen.
He said he* will issue an order for no more police escorts in Benton county, except in special circumstances.
Popenhagen said he has received calls for an escort several times where it was questionable* whether an emergency vehicle was really needed.
He said it is more dangerous to escort someone than to let them go through on their own, especially at night, as |K*oplc* sometimes pull over for sirens and flashing rt-d lights and then pull back onto roads as soon as the* vehicle has passed, not realizing there may be* a second vehic le coming.
Also, he- said, trying to keep two vehicles together (the escort and the emergency vehicle) while passing ears and meeting traffic" can get real hairy.”
