Following the revelation earlier today in the IDAHO STATESMAN story and the previous post on the GUARDIAN, Adams Sheriff Ryan Zollman decided to change his mind about putting the deputies back on duty until the ISP investigation is completed, and perhaps not even then.
That is probably good news for citizens of Adams county and is a first step in creating some credibility in law enforcement circles. The county’s insurance carrier (a consortium of Idaho counties) said they will continue to pay salaries for the deputies who are both on administrative leave, pending the outcome of the ISP investigation.
Read the previous post (below) for details of why Zollman’s office was flooded with calls and e-mails protesting the previously announced decision to return the deputies to duty.
