Sheriff in Wisconsin pulls deputies back from North Dakota pipeline deployment


Deputies from the Dane County Sheriff’s Office in Wisconsin who were sent to North Dakota this week to aid police efforts at a contested pipeline site will return by Sunday and will not be replaced, as earlier planned, Sheriff Dave Mahoney said Wednesday.

After talking with “a wide cross-section of the community who all share the opinion that our deputies should not be involved in this situation,” Mahoney said, he decided to stop the Sheriff’s Office’s participation after one week.

The original plan was to rotate three teams of deputies Sunday-to-Sunday over three weeks, he said. He said reduced reimbursement of costs also played a part in the decision.
