Several residents that reside or own property near a proposed shooting park attended the Crossville City Council work session Tuesday night to express their dismay with the project. The City has given land at the site of the old city landfill to accommodate the project. Those in attendance were concerned about the noise and possible devaluation of their property. A binding contract has been signed and the land is set to be conveyed in April. Council members were open to delaying conveyance to allow the residents time to meet with the shooting park group.
A Cookeville man has been charged with aggravated child abuse after allegedly hitting a 7-year-old boy so hard he knocked out a tooth. WKRN reports that Jonathan Clay Davis, age 27, was attempting to get the boy to take his medication, which was a large pill, by holding him down, plugging his nose and pouring water down his throat. When the boy bit Davis he reportedly slapped the child so hard it knocked out one of the boy’s teeth. Davis then reportedly violently spanked the boy. The man also reportedly took the mother’s cell phone to prevent her from calling for help for the child. The boy was treated at Cookeville Regional Medical Center on Saturday where hospital officials found a knot on the back of his head and several bruises on the boy’s torso and skull. Davis was taken into custody on Sunday and charged with Aggravated Child Abuse and Interference With an Emergency Phone Call. His bond was set at $26,500. The Herald – Citizen reports that Davis is on probation for a previous incident of aggravated assault against the child’s mother.

The City of Crossville Police Department is excited to announce the introduction of our first ever ELDER WATCH PROGRAM. The purpose of the program is for our office to have a personal contact with elderly citizens of the City of Crossville, to ensure their personal welfare. The Elder Watch Program is designed to enhance contact with homebound elderly persons and residents with special needs. We are often contacted by out-of-town family members who are concerned for the well-being of these persons, due to a lack of contact.
Through the Elder Watch Program, regular contact can be established with those who request to participate. This program will be operated by members of the Crossville Police Department and our VIP (Volunteers in Policing) program, who will establish contact with the homebound person, on a regular basis, to check on their well-being. If, through the course of his or her regular duties, an officer or volunteer encounters a resident who would benefit from the Elder Watch program, the officer would be encouraged to provide an Elder Watch Request Form to that resident.
Elder Watch Program Details
• Upon regular intervals, a member of the Crossville Police Department will attempt to contact participants by home visits.
• We will check on the welfare of the participants, their personal well-being and check their physical condition during extreme weather, heat / cool, etc.
The Crossville Police Department wants to stress the importance of increasing the awareness of this new Elder Watch program, in an effort to help insure the safety of our community’s must vulnerable residents.
Elder Watch Request Forms can be picked up at Police Headquarters during normal business hours. Residents or family members may also contact the VIP office at (931)484-7231, ext. 123, to request that an Elder Watch Request Form be mailed to their home, or to schedule one of our Volunteers come to their home and assist in filling out the request form.
