Shelbyville Police Department News

We have been contacted by several local church congregations offering to provide food and drinks on Oct. 28. We are very appreciative of these offers. We ask that if you do choose to help, we will need water, Gatorade, and packaged snacks that would be easy to provide officers in the field. Please drop off at the police department office on Lane Parkway by 5:00 Friday. Again, we are very appreciative of everyone's support and ask that you continue praying for the safety of all involved. #weloveourcommunity

Quiz: Are these guns real or fake? After looking at this photo, can you determine if these handguns are real or fake? An officer may need to decide in a split second whether these firearms are real or fake. Can you do it? Recently, officers of the Shelbyville Police Department have come across replica firearms and/or CO2 pellet guns which have been altered to resemble real firearms. This is a dangerous trend. Parents please educate your children on the dangers of possessing replica firearms. If your child has altered a toy or CO2 pellet gun in a fashion to resemble a real firearm please confiscate and destroy it.

This week marks the 18th anniversary of the missing of Antonio Yarnell Taylor. The Shelbyville Police Department needs your help and urges anyone with information to come forward.

If you have information please call Crimestoppers at 931-685-4300 or the Criminal Investigations Division at 931-684-5811.
