Imposes tougher penalties for domestic violence, felons with guns and gang activity
BARTLETT – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today held a ceremonial bill signing at the Bartlett Criminal Justice Center to highlight three pieces of public safety legislation. The bills were a result of his administration’s multi-agency, comprehensive public safety action plan aimed at curbing violent crime, lowering the rate of repeat offenders, and significantly reducing drug abuse and drug trafficking in Tennessee.
“One of the key roles of state government is to keep citizens safe,” Haslam said. “These laws will play an important role in combating some of our state’s toughest safety challenges.”
