Cass County deputies among officers patrolling pipeline protests


FARGO—Cass County deputies have answered a call for help from Morton County at the site of protests against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline near the Standing Rock Reservation in south central North Dakota.

Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney and 11 of his deputies are there to supplement county deputies and state troopers on scene, Laney said Wednesday, Aug. 17.

Laney said he's serving as the deputy incident commander. He said Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier asked him Saturday to put out a statewide call for mutual aid from other sheriff's departments.
