A Sheriff for the safety and rights of all!!

My name is Bill Kennedy, I have dedicated my life to pro-active law enforcement and I am running to be the next Sheriff of Rutherford County, to give our citizens an honest and professional choice as the top law enforcement servant. 


I care about our community, families, and keeping our kids safe.  As leaders, it is our responsibility to rid our community and classrooms from organized gangs, illegal guns, drugs and any other unlawful and illegal influences on our youth.  There is nothing more satisfying  to a professional law enforcement officer than to help our youth turn away from these destructive influences. I know this for I've served students in every school throughout Rutherford County, and have conducted SRO seminars for other law enforcement agencies across the Volunteer State.  As the Model SRO Program throughout the U.S. I've trained officers to think 'pro-active' and not think only 're-active' in their law enforcement responsibilities. 


As your Sheriff I will play an active role in making Rutherford County a safe place to live our lives and raise our children who are future adult citizens of Rutherford County. I'm committed to this community, our children, and our safetyIf you share my vision, I urge you to connect with me and help make it happen! Together, we can make a meaningful difference.
