JACKSON, Tenn.- Tuesday a Madison County Deputy was honored as the Jackson Exchange Club’s Law Enforcement Officer of the year. The honor went to Deputy Larry Flowers. The five year veteran of the department currently serves as the school resource officer at Northeast Middle School, and is credited with negotiating the surrender of the suspect in a January shooting outside Liberty Tech High School. The suspect is one of Flowers’ former students. He said the award is not just for him, but for everyone in law enforcement. “It should be more recognition, I mean everyday officers go above and beyond and they’re not recognized,” Flowers said. “I could go on all day about it.” Also Madison County Mayor Jimmy Harris proclaimed Tuesday Larry Flowers Day.
