The officers in attendance represent the following agencies: Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, Carrollton Police Department, Grundy County Sheriff’s Office, Kirksville Police Department, Linn County Sheriff’s Office, Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, and Truman State University DPS.

This is what happened when the sheriff slowly backed out a sloped drive with packed ice and the door came in contact with a hedge hitching post.  The hedge post survived just fine.
