tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting News Sunday July 24, 2016


The Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) was named the “First Place Winner” in Highway Patrol/State Police agency category consisting of 501-1500 troopers in the nation for 2016. Additionally, THP received two awards in “Traffic Incident Management and Technology”.

The THP recently competed in an annual International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Law Enforcement Challenge by presenting programs and results of public safety efforts. All law enforcement agencies in the country (local police departments, sheriff’s offices, campus police, military police and state police agencies) are invited to submit a presentation or packet detailing their public safety efforts. The THP competed in the largest state agency category which is the “mid-size department” division of state police agencies between 501 and 1500 Troopers. THP competed against all law enforcement agencies in the special awards category.

Over the last four years, THP was the only state police agency to place in the top three and has won several special awards for our Commercial Vehicle Program.

WVLT Saturday July 23, 2016

SWEETWATER, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A man is in jail after he allegedly stole an ambulance with an EMS worker inside Friday, according to Monroe County and Sweetwater Police officers.

The man jumped into an ambulance at Skyway Dialysis near Highway 68 in Sweetwater, according to Sweetwater police. As he drove away, investigators used the ambulance's GPS signal to track the vehicle down.

Officers found the ambulance near Cleveland Farm Road. The EMS worker in the back told deputies the suspect ran into a corn field, Sweetwater Police said.

A Monroe County Sheriff's K9 found the suspect about a half mile into that corn field.

The Monroe County Sheriff said the suspect is facing attempted second degree murder charges for trying to run over a City of Sweetwater Patrol Officer, kidnapping, theft, and fleeing and evading arrest.
