On Friday afternoon CPD Detectives joined with other law enforcement officials and local community leaders to participate in the Maury County Portion of the "Walk Across the District" event that was sponsored by the 22nd Judicial District Attorney's office and A Kid's Place Child Advocacy Center. The walk was the last of four walks (similar walks were held in Giles, Lawrence, and Wayne Counties) in the 22nd judicial District that day and was performed to show support for crime victims. April is National Child Abuse Prevention month and this week is National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. The walk began in Riverwalk Park and ended on the lawn of the Maury County Courthouse. At the conclusion of the walk, Brent Cooper, District Attorney General for the 22nd Judicial District thanked all participants for the show of support and then ordered the release of blue balloons.

April 8-14, 2018, is National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week! Emergency response starts with a call to our Maury County 911 Center. The dedicated professionals that answer every single one of those calls in some of people’s darkest hours are 911 Dispatchers. The calm voices on the other end of the line are the behind-the-scenes heroes. Their job is more than just answering phones and radio calls. Dispatchers determine the type and level of response necessary, monitor response progression and safety of responding units, operate the computer-aided dispatch system. From initiating a response to the “all clear”, they are involved with each police, fire, EMS and community emergency call. ­­­ These professionals are often forgotten and go unrecognized for the work they do. CPD is taking time to celebrate the people who tie the many arms of emergency response together. Dispatchers are at the end of a call from the public 365 days a year and 24 hours a day. They are expected to remain calm, professional, empathetic, knowledgeable, compassionate, and extract pertinent information while someone may be having the worst moment of their life. They are the nerve center of any public safety office and deserve every bit of credit and praise that can be given to them. CPD appreciates you!

Thank you Ronald Beal for sending us these photos of CPD Motor Officer Carl Shrake & Spring Hill Police Motor Officer John Smith from the Mule Day Parade!

Another successful Mule Day in the books! Thank you again to all of our Law Enforcement partners, 1st Responders & Dispatchers for helping CPD keep our #commUNITY safe!

The weather has surely dampened the events of Mule Day, but CPD is still out checking on things and keeping the city safe.

Lunch time at CPD. Kelly Poling, the admin assist for the investigation division sets up the lunch (and later, dinner) for all of our 1st responders.

Motor patrol hitting the streets.

CPD modifies our patrol shifts to two - 12 hour shifts. Every CPD officer works Mule Day, no one is off. We appreciate all of the 1st Responders & Law Enforcement partners that assist us in this very busy day!

...and so Mule Day 2018 begins for CPD at the "707".

CPD's Officer Steven Schmidt & Corporal Mike Johns pictured here, are using their asp batons to clear debris that clogged the grates on a bridge. The water had backed up knee-deep causing a hazardous condition. These officers waded out & unclogged the drains so that the water could freely flow. #service #CPD #commUNITY #LEO #columbiatn #columbia #Tennessee #lawenforcement #asp #rain #Muletown #alwaysopenforbusiness #welovecolumbia #patrol Follow CPD inn Instagram @columbiapdtn
