SHPD Requesting Donations for the Davis House Child Advocacy Center

The SHPD is collecting items for the Davis House Child Advocacy Center in Franklin. The mission of Davis House Child Advocacy Center is to combat child abuse by coordinating services to children and their families in crisis and providing community education focused on prevention and early intervention. We accomplish this by providing investigative and healing services in response to allegations of sexual and severe physical abuse in our four-county service area of Williamson, Hickman, Lewis and Perry counties, as well as training adults in the community on how to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child abuse.

The Davis House is in need of the following supplies: pens, sticky notes, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, plastic cups, plastic eating utensils, coloring books, crayons, colored pencils, puzzles, new stuffed animals, and juice boxes.

If you wish to donate, please bring these items to the lower level (left side) of Spring Hill City Hall, 199 Town Center Parkway, to the Police Department. If you can bring them between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, our records clerk can take them. If the records clerk is not there, please use the call-box to request another employee. If you are unable to drop off during normal business hours, please drop off your donation in the lobby. All donations will be accepted until April 3. Thank you for your help in assisting the Davis House.

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.
