SHPD Looking to Identify Police Impersonator

At about 10 a.m. on Feb. 14, a person in the Target parking lot was approached by a male subject who falsely identified himself as a police officer with the Spring Hill Police Department.

The subject was described as Asian, 5’7” to 5’9” tall, wearing a black “hoodie,” black pants, and a black shirt. The subject had a freckle on his left cheek, near his eye. The subject was driving what appeared to be a gray, newer-model Ford Focus four-door hatchback.

The suspect told the victim that the victim “fit the description of a suspect that robbed the Sherwin Williams” in Spring Hill. The suspect asked for the victim’s driver’s license; the victim displayed the license but the suspect did nothing with it. The suspect did not display any type of police ID, badge, or insignia. The suspect vehicle is shown above.

If you have any information concerning this, please submit an anonymous tip: here or call 931-486-2632.

SHPD Receives Second Tennessee Law Enforcement Accreditation Award

The Spring Hill Police Department recently accepted its first re-accreditation from the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police (TACP). 

The SHPD was accredited initially in 2015. The TACP Law Enforcement Accreditation Program is intended to provide Tennessee law enforcement agencies an avenue to advance the science and the art of police services by demonstrating that throughout the state commonly accepted standards are for the development and improvement of these services. Standards that are set forth in this program are not the maximum or minimum standards, but are standards that will set apart agencies that wish to encourage and adhere to high professional standards furthering the law enforcement profession.

These professional standards are a reflection of law enforcement agencies throughout the State of Tennessee and will enhance and assist each department in the operation and practices to promote and encourage adherence of all police officers to high professional standards of conduct and performance. The Law Enforcement Accreditation Program is administered by the TACP – Professional Standards Committee and is intended to encourage cooperation, recognize professional standing, encourage professional services and ensure public safety throughout the State of Tennessee. This program is a valuable and cost effective way to enhance overall agency effectiveness and professionalism.

This form will assist officers when they are responding to a call for service or if they locate a person with special needs. For example, if we get dispatched to a call involving a person with dementia, and they can’t remember where they live and have no identification on them, we would have the information needed on file to be able to identify the person and contact the person listed as an emergency contact.

We recommend that these forms be updated annually. Pictures of the person can be uploaded to the form.

The SHPD and the Tennessee Highway Safety Office will be Participating in the Annual SAFE Campaign

The Spring Hill Police Department is partnering with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) for its annual “Seatbelts Are For Everyone (SAFE)” campaign. 
This statewide initiative is designed to increase seatbelt usage and child passenger safety restraint usage through the implementation of occupant-protection programs, public events and checkpoints throughout local communities across Tennessee. The SAFE campaign begins Feb. 1, 2019, and concludes Aug. 1, 2019.

 

“Slow Down Spring Hill and Buckle Up”

 

2019 will be the sixth year the THSO has sponsored the SAFE campaign. Last year yielded the following results:

 

  • 1,182 child restraint violations
  • 13,165 seat belt citations
  • 305 other seat belt enforcement activities

 

“In 2017, Tennessee’s average seatbelt usage rate was 88.5 percent,” said THSO Director Vic Donoho. “Last year, the usage rate was 88.7 percent. Through increased education, enforcement, and community involvement, we’re striving to achieve 100 percent.”

 

This year, participating agencies will pay special attention to nighttime seatbelt enforcement. Tennessee has seen a disproportionate percentage of unrestrained fatalities between the hours of 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m. Historically, about 50 percent of Tennessee’s traffic fatalities are unbelted. That percentage increases to nearly 60 when nighttime crashes are examined.
