An amendment of Bradley County Sheriff Office’s General Orders regarding the use of the agency’s fleet vehicles has been approved allowing deputies and other uniformed officers to drive their fleet vehicles to worship centers, as well as civic and nonprofit organizations.
Bradley County Sheriff Eric Watson said he believes this pro-active effort will be a deterrent to prevent acts of violence in the community.
For many years, off-duty
deputies have provided assistance with high-traffic areas for organizations,
which allows them to utilize their emergency audible and visual equipment to
ensure the safety of vehicles exiting the parking lots.
"It’s the sheriff’s office mission to be a visible presence in the community, whether officers are on patrol or by the use of marked patrol vehicles, in order to deter, disrupt and detect criminality and keep people safe,” Watson said.
