Inscription.  On March 20, 2016, Howard County Sheriff Deputy Carl Koontz gave the ultimate sacrifice protecting our community. While serving an early morning search warrant in Russiaville, Indiana, the suspect opened fire on several officers. As a result, Deputy Koontz was shot and lost his life in the line of duty. The courage and selflessness in which he performed his job as Sheriff's Deputy was an example for all. We will forever remember his dedication and commitment to his family, the Sheriff's Department and to Howard County.
