Police Department

From the Chief:

The White Pine area and other areas including Jefferson City and Dandridge have had a string of car burglaries lately. All the police depts. are working together to try and find whomever is responsible. We have to do this together and what I mean by that is if you see something suspicious in your neighborhood, an unknown car or someone walking through the neighborhood that you are not familiar with PLEASE CALL AND REPORT IT. These thefts have occurred between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. If you have anything valuable please take it inside and lock your car doors (most of these have happened to unlocked vehicles) and DO NOT LEAVE YOUR FIREARMS IN YOUR VEHICLE (10 guns have been reported so far) also record your serial numbers to your property and take a picture if all possible. Please don't think that you are a burden if you call, we want you to call and report it. Look out for yours and your neighbors property and again if it doesn't look right please call and report it. The police dept. is only as good as the people we serve so let's team up, keep our eyes on anything suspicious and please report!!! Together we will find whomever is responsible.

Thank you,

Chad
