There are 21-new law enforcement officers in our community. Of that number, 8-Rutherford County Sheriff’s deputies (photo above) and 13-Murfreesboro Police Officers (photo below) became certified law enforcement officers and graduated on Friday from the 12-week Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy.
Graduates are Deputy Joel Beckman, Deputy Terry Bennett, Deputy Kevin Cast, Deputy Riley Dunmyer, Deputy Nathaniel Harrington, Deputy Steve Hill, Deputy Tyler Marks and Deputy Treviair Ramey.
Ramey, who was class president, thanked the families and friends who support the officers. He thanked the instructors for shaping them and giving them tools for their career. “We started as a team and ended as family,” Ramey said of his classmates. “Never forget the things you heard here.”
The keynote speaker was Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director David Rausch, who encouraged the graduates to talk about their work experiences with their families. “They will keep you grounded,” Rausch said.
Rausch advised the officers to:
• Take care of themselves physically and mentally.
• Remember you are a servant of your community.
• Never compromise your integrity.
• Always do what is right.
• Treat people the way you want to be treated.
