Five Overton High Students Charged With Loitering
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Five students at Overton High School were charged Thursday after they tried to leave campus while school was still in session.
The students were charged with loitering during school hours.
West Flex Officers conducted the truancy sweep using unmarked vehicles. They watched for students who appeared to be skipping school.
Uniformed officers then made investigative stops of those who appeared to be in violation.
The truancy operation is an on-going effort between the police department, Juvenile Court, and school officials to ensure that students are in school and remain there until dismissal.
