This also helps decrease crime in our community and it is our belief that this event will help to save lives. The Take Back will be held at the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, located at 90 Justice Center Drive, Crossville, TN 38555 (across from Cumberland Medical Center) on April 30, 2016 from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM.
