Recently, U.S. Representative John Rose (TN-6) joined the Mt. Juliet Police Department for a ride-along to experience a day in the life of local police officers and learn firsthand the contributions law enforcement make toward protecting and serving our local communities.
The ride along in Mt. Juliet was hosted by Lieutenant Wesley Neely and included a briefing on what the Mt. Juliet Police Department is doing to protect the community, develop better training methods, and strengthen relations between officers and the public.
“The men and women who serve in law enforcement are some of the best people in our communities. They run toward danger, never away, and risk their lives to protect us and our families. It’s important for me to understand the challenges our local police departments face so that I can better represent their needs in Congress,” said Representative Rose. “I want to thank the Mt. Juliet Police Department for providing me with a glimpse of a day in the life of a local officer. I will always back the blue.”
