ELKHART — The Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department is changing its procedure for completing salvage vehicle inspections.

Starting Tuesday, Jan. 14, those requesting a salvage vehicle inspection will be required to schedule an appointment to take their vehicle to the sheriff’s department at 26861 C.R. 26, according to a press release.

Appointments can be made between 12 and 4 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, and are conducted by an officer at no cost.

The change will allow officers to use the department’s garage, which is equipped with tools and a lift, and it will allow them to complete a vehicle check within 15 minutes, according to the press release.

The new procedures are expected to save time that could be used in patrols by officers not having to drive to and from various locations throughout the county.

With this new procedure, applicants of a salvage vehicle title will have to tow their vehicle to the sheriff’s department, Capt. Jim Bradberry, public information officer with the sheriff’s department, said.

Applicants might also be able to receive a temporary registration from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to be able to drive their vehicle to the sheriff’s department for inspection.

Anyone applying for a salvage vehicle title must have their vehicle inspected by an Indiana police officer.

Anyone needing to schedule an appointment for a salvage vehicle inspection can contact Sgt. Mark Diamond at 891-2380 or by email at mdiamond@elkhartcountysheriff.com.
