THP Checkpoints
Jay Walker Friday September 19, 2014

The Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting a seat belt checkpoint in Warren County Friday night on Highway 70S.
Recognizing that a high number of vehicle occupants killed in fatal crashes were unrestrained, the Highway Patrol has elected to create an enforcement campaign aimed at drastically reducing the number of unrestrained drivers and occupants.
Troopers will also be on active patrol observing for unrestrained drivers and passengers.

 


Security Company Report
Friday September 19, 2014

McMinnville Police Chief Bryan Denton says a report that lists McMinnville as having a worse crime rate than Nashville has no credibility. The report was released Thursday by a security company called Safe Streets USA.
The report lists Crossville as the most dangerous city in Tennessee. Memphis is third on the list, Manchester is seventh, McMinnville is 13th and Nashville is 14th.
Chief Denton said he believes it is an attempt by the security company to scare residents into purchasing their alarm systems. He said they do so by skewing the numbers to achieve their objective.
