The penalties are stiff for Tennessee protective order violations

"Protective orders" can be referred to in a variety of ways in Murfreesboro and other parts of Tennessee. They're sometimes called "restraining orders," and other times, they are referred to as "orders of protection". Each of these legal documents has the same purpose, no matter what they're referred to as. These orders exist to keep one individual a certain distance away from another one who requested protection.

Law enforcement getting tougher on drugs

There are many reasons law enforcement and the general public stand against drug use and the illicit drug trade in Tennessee. Not only has drug overdose remained a serious epidemic in America for decades, but violent crimes are often associated with the illicit drug trade. For these and other reasons, the federal government began to focus its efforts on the drug trade from as early as the 1980s.

How high is the rate of violent crime in Tennessee?

When you think of states with the highest crime rates, you may think of New York, Florida and California. These three states have multiple big cities; urban areas have long been considered a common area for crime to take place. However, according to Fox17, Tennessee’s crime rate is on the rise and now outpaces the national average.

Predictive policing no longer just science fiction

In 2002, Minority Report made it to the big screen with Tom Cruise as the main star. In the movie, police officers were able to predict crime and arrest the person responsible before they committed the act. In 2015, Business Insider reported that some police departments in metropolitan cities, like Nashville Tennessee, now planned to follow a similar premise for real life crime fighting. They would do so by relying on data mining to prevent violent crime.
