Deputy Ben Baldwin

John Colemon Elementary

My name is Ben Baldwin and I was hired by the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office in the summer of 2013 to join the SRO division. I previously worked for the Smyrna Police Department as a patrol officer for nearly 6 years. Although I loved working as a patrol officer and being a member of a fantastic agency, I felt like I was being called to a new career in law enforcement. I am honored to be employed by the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office and assigned to the prideful SRO division in charge of serving and protecting the youth of Rutherford County. I hope to be able to provide an environment at the school for the students and faculty to feel safe and allow them to concentrate on learning/teaching. I also want to help teach and educate the students and provide counseling for those in need. One of my main goals as an SRO is to be a positive influence to all of the students and serve as a positive role model in the best way that I can.
