The Power of Putnam Coalition reached out to one of their local law enforcement agencies, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO), to see if it would be possible for PCSO to display the REDLINE number on their patrol cars. “It is compassion coming from an unexpected source,” says coalition leader Bill Gibson. The stickers, which were put on the side of all patrol vehicles, say in red text, “Your life matters” and have the Tennessee REDLINE number listed below. The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office was the first law enforcement agency in Tennessee to have the REDLINE number on their vehicles.
