MTSU Police has joined hundreds of law enforcement and emergency personnel from throughout Rutherford County to take part in a first-ever comprehensive training program to better coordinate response to major incidents and active threats in the county. MTSU Police Capt. Jeff Martinez, a U.S. Army veteran, is among a group of instructors who is helping train roughly 1,200 emergency personnel by the end of the year made up of law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel representing Rutherford County, Murfreesboro, Smyrna, La Vergne, Eagleville, MTSU and Motlow State Community College. “The more we see each other and work together, the faster we’re going to respond to the real thing. Because if something happens, it affects everybody,” said Martinez, whose colleagues, MTSU Police Lt. Jon Leverette and Lt. Jacob Wagner, are also instructors.
