Great CPD Pumpkin Hunt Is On

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

The Chattanooga Police Department is partnering with YFD to encourage a fun way for kids and their families to learn more about the Real Time Intelligence Center and the public safety cameras placed around the city through the Great CPD Pumpkin Hunt. 

To participate find the pumpkins around the city, take a photo of the pumpkin at each location, post it to social media (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram) using the hashtag #CPDPumpkinHunt, repeat for all 15 locations, then send an email to emoss@chattanooga.gov to receive a prize pack (must pick up at a YFD center). 

A grand prize winner will be selected from completed entries. The winner will get a private tour of the RTIC.  The contest will run through Oct. 31.

The locations are indicated in the attached photo.

The Real Time Intelligence Center is an initiative by Mayor Andy Berke and the Chattanooga Police Department to help keep people safe by reducing violent crime in the communities. The community investment in the RTIC means police have the tools, technology, and data to respond quickly to the community's needs and successfully prosecute violent aggressors, said officials. The RTIC has three major components including a crime analysis team, real time reporting for faster, smarter deployment of resources, and public safety cameras.
