     Sheriff Eddie Farris is proud to announce that the Sheriff’s Office has it first ever certified motor unit. Deputy Al Reyes, a veteran motorman and instructor, Sgt. Tim Davis and Deputy Gary Davis will serve in the new unit.

     “I am pleased to announce the formation of our new motors,” said Sheriff Farris. “If we are to be a world-class Sheriff’s Office, it is important for us to have a motor unit,” added Sheriff’ Farris. “Motormen provide us with a flexible asset than can be deployed in a number of situations where a regular patrol car may not be advantageous. They also increase the visibility of the Office throughout the county, giving us greater opportunities to interact with the public we serve.”

     The new motor unit will be responsible for regular road patrol as well as handling special events, providing escort for visiting dignitaries, and working in conjunction with Tennessee Highway Patrol and Cookeville Police Department at DUI and traffic enforcement check points. During inclement weather, Deputies Al Reyes and Tim Davis will drive patrol cars.

     On October 1st, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office was awarded a $5,000 Governor’s Highway Safety grant for the new motor unit. These funds were used to outfit them with rain gear and two new High Visibility Enforcement laser units that will be used for traffic enforcement in the county.
