School is Back in Session

School is back in session, so the men and women of the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office urge everyone to drive safely in our school zones and around public school buses.

Morning and evening traffic activity is also increasing as parents drop children off and pick them up, and as high school-age students drive themselves.


Besides our School Patrol officers with their bright yellow shirts directing traffic, citizens will often see patrol deputies in school zones for the first few weeks of the school year and periodically thereafter.

Sheriff Robert Arnold says we'll have zero tolerance for aggressive drivers endangering busloads of children and school zones by ignoring directions, safety lights and devices.

The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office wants to help ensure no child in our county gets hurt or killed while in transit to and from school this year.
