Issue Position

By:  Roy Herron
Location: Unknown

Roy is dedicated to making our communities safe.

As a legislator, Roy has fought crime and led efforts to crack down on meth and drunk driving. He helped sponsor the Meth-Free Tennessee Act, which reduced the number of meth lab incidents in Tennessee by over 50 percent. He has sponsored measures to mandate that drunk drivers install ignition interlocks and promoted public education to discourage drunk driving.

Herron has also worked not only to fight crime but to protect victims. He sponsored the Crime Victim Bill of Rights, a constitutional amendment which ensures that victims of crime are protected from harassment, compensated for their pain, informed of the release or escape of their offenders, and able to have their voices heard throughout the criminal justice process.

Roy will continue working to ensure that our families and communities are free from drug abuse and safe from crime.
