An amendment of the 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 non-profit organizations.
Bradley County Sheriff Eric Watson said he believes this proactive effort will be a deterrent to prevent acts of violence in the community.
Additionally, Watson issued a written directive to the patrol division for deputies to know the location of all worship centers and other nonprofit organizations in their assigned patrol zone. When a service or meeting is in session at the establishment, patrol personnel are to be vigilant in patrolling parking lots.
If traffic assistance is needed by an organization, the sheriff’s office allows personnel to provide this service on an off-duty contract being approved by the agency. The details regarding the contract can be discussed by contacting Patrol Captain Dennis Goins at the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.
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.
