Bradley County Sheriff Adding Security Patrols At 2 High Schools

Tuesday, March 6, 2018

In an effort to provide an additional layer of protection at two county high schools, Bradley County Sheriff Eric Watson said he will assign personnel to security booths directly in front of both campuses.

Bradley Central High School and Walker Valley High School will now have an armed deputy sheriff who will maintain a written log to check individuals who come and leave the school campuses during the day.

Additionally, a marked patrol vehicle will be stationed in conjunction with the security booth as a visible presence of the Bradley County Sheriff Office’s presence.

Director of Schools Linda Cash stated, “As the director of schools, I am pleased with the addition to increase safety at both of our schools. This was made possible with the help of Sheriff Eric Watson and the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.”

Since 2014, Sheriff Watson has added a crossing guard at Walker Valley High School and an additional School Resource Officer at Bradley Central High School. Both county high schools will now have three assigned security personnel from the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office to help with school security operations.

Sheriff Watson said, “I want to commend Dr. Linda Cash and the Bradley County School Board for recognizing the need to evaluate and monitor individuals who frequent high-school campuses during the school day. After much collaboration between the sheriff’s office and Bradley County Schools, implementation of the security booths is the first of several initiatives that will be instituted to enhance security measures to assist with protecting faculty and students.”
