Five City of Crossville Police Department officers have received recognition with the issuance of “Officer of the Month” awards for April, 2016.
In November 2014, Crossville Police Narcotics Detectives began an undercover investigation of a group of subjects that were traveling to Michigan from Crossville who were selling large quantities of prescription pills. The investigation has been ongoing since that time and recently resulted in undercover purchases that led to a search warrant being served on their car following a traffic stop.
This criminal enterprise has been taken down and they will be answering for their illegal actions due to the hard work and diligent investigation conducted by these fine officers. It is for this reason we nominate them for Officer of the Month for April 2016.
Listed below are the recognized police officers for April, 2016:
• K-9 Sgt. Dustin Lester
• Patrol Officer Nick Sherrill
• Patrol Officer Jared South
• Sgt. Jonathan O’Neal (not pictured)
• Det. Sgt. Kenneth Cherry (not pictured)

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A census estimates that Memphis is on the verge of losing its title as Tennessee's largest city to fast-growing Nashville.
The Commercial Appeal reports the figures, which were released Thursday, show that as of July 1, 2015, Memphis' population was 655,770 and Nashville's was 654,610.
However, that 1,160-person gap closed as Memphis lost 712 residents and Nashville gained 9,881.
John Gnuschke, director of the Sparks Bureau of Business and Economic Research at the University of Memphis, says that if the latest figures, which cover municipalities and other "sub-county" areas, show Memphis is not growing, they also confirm that the city's population is not in rapid decline.
Memphis became the state's largest city with the 1900 Census, when its population rose to 102,320 compared to 80,865 for Nashville.
