You might see the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) at your child’s school more often. As a part of the Governor Bill Lee’s executive order on school safety State Troopers say they’ve already started and will continue to be more visible than in past years at Tennessee Schools.
Troopers were already watching school zones for speeders, but Colonel Matt Perry says you will see them out of their cars as well.
Col. Matt Perry of the Tennessee Highway Patrol commented on the added presence at a Williamson County Policy Talk meeting recently saying they’re driving school parking lots now, not to alarm parents or to let them think there’s something going on. However, since they’re already there, they might as well ride through. THP won’t go banging on doors at schools, but if they see something suspicious or off, they’ll be visible.
THP says there’s close to 1,800 schools in the state and they don’t get to all of them but they want to.
