I am Tommy Myers and I have appreciated being your Sheriff for the past four years. I have been faced with many challenges during my tenure and have faced them head-on.
If elected again, I promise to continue to work for the betterment of Warren County, a place dear to my heart. This is the comunity where I was raised and now my children are being raised here.
The safety and security of all the citizens of Warren County is what I have been sworn to protect and what I strive to provide. I continually look for ways to improve security within our schools and ways in which law enforcement can impact the lives of children and teachers within them.
I have made it a priority to equip my officers with the tools they need to complete their tasks and provide emergency help and services to our citizens. I have taken pride in being the overseer of the jail and striving to make it not only certified, but one of the best in the state.
I am a constant steward of the taxpayers' money while ensuring they receive the best quality law enforcement. If reelected, I promise to continue to put Warren County first, to evaluate the services given and provide the best department I can to the people.
We have accomplished a lot over the last four years but we are not satisfied and have plans and goals for the future.
Those accomplishments include the following.
• We've had certification of Warren County Jail for the past two years and we will be certified for a third straight year on Aug. 1.
• We've increased the SRO presence at schools during regular hours and at after-school events.
• We've provided first aid kits and body cameras to officers.
• We've received the NAMI award recognizing our work with mental illness.
• We've established officers to task forces with the DEA, U.S. Marshals, and TBI.
• We've developed TCAT training for inmates.
• We've placed the LEADS program in our schools. This stands for Law Enforcement Against Drugs and is a new type of DARE program.
• We've added an in-house mental counselor at the jail.
• We've added four K-9s to combat drugs.
• We've increased our nurse presence at the jail.
• We received the Tennessee Highway Safety Office seatbelt checkpoint award.
• We've had the Jail Administrator of the Year
• We've added rifles and shotguns to every patrol car.
• We have increased our training budget.
• We are part of the State Victim Notification Program.
I sincerely ask for your vote during early voting and the General Election on Aug. 4.
