I just wanted to take a moment to update you on the the status of the stolen Escalade from December 28, 2020. Kouts officers have been following leads, provided by the public during the course of this investigation. Recently the investigation took our officers to Northern Lake County (Indiana) which then led them to an address in Lake Station. Our officer, upon arriving in Lake Station located and recovered the stolen vehicle. While the vehicle has been recovered, we are still pursing active leads into person(s) of interest. I just wanted to thank members of the community who provided crucial information taking us this far.

If your vehicle was broken into please provide your name, address and a list of what is missing to the Kouts Police Department.

Thank you to the Kouts Cub Scouts Troop #922 for inviting Lt. Miller, Ofc Bogue and Nicole Markovich to speak last Thursday night about civic duties and citizenship at Cornerstone Church. It was an honor to be able to assist these amazing young men in earning their merit badges.
On October 11th, 2019, Kouts Police Officer Scott Kleckner along with Kouts Fire/Hebron Fire and Porter EMS were dispatched to the area of Main St and Alice St for a vehicle that had crashed into a house. Off-duty Porter County Sheriff Deputy Tyler Ball was nearby and immediately responded. Upon arrival both Officers quickly determined that the elderly male driver was unconscious and in need of immediate life saving action. Both officers safely removed the subject from the vehicle, ensuring the structure resting on top of the vehicle remained stable.
Officer Ball and Officer Kleckner immediately began Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), to revive the subject. Officer Kleckner retrieved an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) from Officer Ball’s patrol vehicle. After several intervals of chest compressions and AED shocks, the subject regained a pulse and began breathing on his own. Kouts Fire Department and EMS arrived shortly thereafter and took over further care of the subject.
After medical evaluations it was discovered that the patient, Kouts resident Jim Fleming, a father, grandfather, great grandfather, and also Military Veteran, suffered a massive cardiac event. This event would have taken his life, had it not been for the quick response and actions of our first responders. After several surgeries, some setbacks, and months of rehabilitation, Jim is back home and doing well. Jim expressed a desire to meet both officers who he said. “Saved his behind” that day. This meeting occurred tonight and was emotional for all involved. We wish Mr. Fleming well in his continued recovery and are proud of the quick actions of both these officers.

We hope this is the first of many, in the following years to come. On our end, a huge kudos to Lt.Miller for organizing everything behind the scenes,he worked very diligently for a few weeks on coordinating everything,without him, it doesn’t happen. Great job.
