I have known Vince Dean for many years. We served together at the Chattanooga Police Department where we were both supervisors. Vince was always well respected by his peers. His subordinates were always very dedicated and loyal to him, as well. As a matter of fact, I don't recall any of his peers or subordinates ever have anything other than praise for him.
Vince was a mentor to younger supervisors that were often assigned to him for training. His reputation was that he was firm but fair. All in all, I think most everyone that ever worked around him would agree that he was one of the best supervisors at the Chattanooga Police Department.
Vince will take his supervisory skills to the Criminal Court clerk's office and create an environment that will translate into friendly, cordial and efficient service to anyone that walks in the office. He will treat everyone with the same amount of respect, whether they be an attorney, a police officer or a defendant. Please vote for my friend, Vince Dean.
