Local Law Enforcement Agencies Team Up In Day-Long Operation To Reduce Outstanding Warrants

Thursday, September 04, 2014

A one-day joint operation by the Chattanooga Police Department (CPD), Hamilton County Sherriff’s Office (HCSO), and Tennessee Department of Correction (TDOC) resulted in the safe arrest of 20 probation and parole violators on outstanding warrants on Wednesday. 

Starting at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, over 70 officers worked together to help TDOC clear a number of outstanding warrants.

“Through this collaboration, we were able to help make our streets safer in a short amount of time,” stated CPD Sgt. Tim Tomisek, who acted as a leader during the day-long operation.  “All agencies work with finite resources, but initiatives like this allow agencies to combine our resources for greater efficiency and a more substantial impact for our community.”

“The Tennessee Department of Correction is very dedicated to its mission of enhancing public safety,” said Robert Reburn, TDOC East Tennessee Region Public Information Officer. “We feel that through initiatives like yesterday’s operation, with the assistance of CPD and HCSO, our field service agents and probation and parole officers are able to achieve that mission here in Chattanooga.”

Officials said, "Local law enforcement agencies are committed to combining their resources in future initiatives to better serve the community and ensure the safety of Chattanooga and its surrounding communities."

Lawlessness At Heritage Park

As a frequent visitor at Heritage Park in East Brainerd, I must say that the situation is becoming slightly out of control.  To start, parking is atrocious.  The unpaved lot contains nothing but loose gravel which has naturally given way to divots in the ground assuring you a few bumps.  Why isn't this area smoothed out?  It's not worth parking there anyways ...

Roy Exum: Why I Am Thankful 2014

Over 40 years ago I was a young sports writer when I came up with the notion of setting daily things aside, just for one day, and writing about why “I Am Thankful.” Every Thanksgiving I come up with my list and it is as much about me as it is about my gratitude for all things great and small.
