State outline showing the counties

Rutherford County, Tennessee has consistently ranked as one of the fastest growing counties in the United States. Latest U.S. Census figures put our population at more than 250,000, but that doesn't take into account the 24,000+ students at Middle Tennessee State University or the thousands who drive through Rutherford County every day on our federal and state roads.

The Rutherford County Sheriff's Office is one of the largest sheriff's offices in Middle Tennessee, covering a territory of more than 626 square miles with a force of approximately 178 sworn law enforcement personnel of which 37 are School Resource Officers, 7 are assigned to Courthouse Security, and another 135 Adult Detention Personnel and 68 civilian personnel. Additionally, we are responsible for approximately 5 square miles of J. Percy Priest Reservoir which lie inside our county. The Sheriff's Office serves three primary areas: 1) Law Enforcement, 2) Adult Detention and 3) Courts. In addition to these primary functions, the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office brought the School Resource Officer (SRO) program to the state of Tennessee, and now has officers in approximately 40 county schools teaching, advising and protecting.
