Host a Tennessee Highway Patrol presentation at your school.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) is a division of the Tennessee Department of Safety (TDOS) and is comprised of eight districts across the state of Tennessee. The mission of the Tennessee Highway Patrol is to ensure safe and efficient transportation while promoting highway safety through enforcement and education. This mission will be achieved by aggressive patrol, criminal interdiction, intelligence gathering, and investigation. The Tennessee Highway Patrol will partner with all levels of local, state, and the federal government to serve the citizens of Tennessee and provide emergency and specialty services when needed.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol can provide the Roll Over Car for presentations, as well as the "Got Nailed" car to display at your high schools. Each presentation with a demonstration vehicle will be worth 300 points separately!
