The work of installing a larger pipeline traversing Northwest Indiana is nearing completion. It required a large security commitment from several police departments because of the strategic nature of that infrastructure.

Oil is an essential natural resource and a prime target for an unknown number of radical groups and individuals who would benefit from the project’s disruption.

Many of the areas affected by the project were along busy roadways, which presented a significant hazard to both pipeline workers and area motorists.

Enbridge and Precision Pipeline paid off-duty officers from the Porter County Sheriff’s Department to guard numerous sites throughout Porter County 24 hours a day for the months the pipeline was vulnerable. What’s more, Precision issued a check for $10,000 to cover the fuel expenses for the many county squad cars there.

I would like to thank Precision and Enbridge for being good employers to our officers, and for paying for the county’s fuel instead of our officers having to do so.

- Porter County Sheriff David Lain
