Five New SROs Added

"School safety is a top priority in our administration," said Sheriff Tommy Jones. "I'm very thankful for the cooperation extended by the public, county commission, and school board. We have been able to hire five new SROs to better serve and protect our children and teachers. In order for a child to learn, he or she must first feel safe. As long as I am Sheriff, I will do everything possible to keep our children protected."

School Resource Officers "SROs" received the following specialized training:

* ALERRT School held in Pigeon Forge TN
* Basic SRO School held in Lebanon TN
* "In-service" Departmental Training held in Madisonville TN

"ALERRT" (Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training): Active shooter Level I Training is a dynamic course of instruction designed to prepare the first responder to isolate, distract, and neutralize an active shooter. This course covered shooting and moving, threshold evaluation, concepts and principles of team movement, setting up for and room entry techniques, approach and breaching the crisis site, secondary responder tactics, improvised explosive devices, and post engagement priorities of work. The course culminated with dynamic force-on-force scenarios.

"Our School Resource Officers, along with the faculty and staff within the Monroe County school system, have worked hard this year on the safety of the students. We will continue to train and develop plans to keep Monroe County safe," said SRO Captain Rusty Vineyard.
