There have been three Safe Haven baby boxes installed in the state of Indiana, but a new law will make it easier for there to be more.
Starting this month, any fire station staffed 24-hours is allowed to install the boxes.
The devices allow people to safely and legally drop off newborns they can’t take of, no questions asked.
All of the boxes lock the baby inside the temperature-controlled box and come with an alarm system to notify 911.
But is there a need for one in Kosciusko County?
One area woman tells the Times-Union she thinks there is.
She says she is talking with local officials and has plenty of support for bringing a Safe Haven box to the county.
She wants to pursue a regional approach with fundraisers in Kosciusko, Whitley, Fulton, Wabash and Grant counties.
She said she hopes to announce plans for community fundraising in about a month.
Each box has about a $10,000 price tag.
