Photo ID now mandatory for employees


Zionsville Times Sentinel

Zionsville — For security reasons, all county employees who work in the Boone County Courthouse must begin wearing photo ID cards.

A gap in security was discovered during preliminary hearings last week for David Camm’s trial for murder of an Indiana State Trooper, due to begin Aug. 5, Sheriff Ken Campbell said. That case was moved to Boone County from southern Indiana on a change of venue.

During the trial, expected to take up to eight weeks, access to the third and fourth floors of the courthouse will be restricted. Deputies from his office and from Floyd County, where Camm’s first murder trial was held, will staff security stations, Campbell said.

“Not everybody knows who everybody is,” Campbell said in asking the Boone County Commissioners Monday, July 1, to mandate the wearing of ID cards. The suggestion was approved, 3-0.
