Knox County Sheriff’s Office Community Crime Map

Click link to go to Knox County Community Crime Map

In 2010 The Knox County Sheriff’s Office was one of the first Law Enforcement Agencies in the State of Tennessee to institute a Community Crime Map. This map allows you to view your neighborhood and also have a neighborhood crime report emailed to you each day.

Reduce crime and improve public safety. LexisNexis’s public crime map, Community Crime Map, connects law enforcement with the community to reduce crime and improve public safety. Crime mapping helps the public get a better idea of the crime activity in their area so they can make more informed decisions about how to stay safe.

Community Crime Map goes beyond crime mapping by automatically alerting the public about recent crime activity and by improving communication between the public and law enforcement through anonymous tips. Community Crime Map empowers the public to make better decisions about crime by putting the same technology used by law enforcement to analyze and interpret crime activity into the hands of the public.

Previous Woman of the Year Sandy Cates introduced Carroll, saying that she is a retired Knox County Schools secretary, formerly active with youth programs at Sharon Baptist Church, and has served as president of the Halls Crossroads Women’s League for the last two years. She is currently the Sunday School secretary at Sharon Baptist.

“This is not just about me,” said Carroll. “This is about the people who support me. This is about the 90 beautiful women who belong to the Halls Crossroads Women’s League who have hearts of service to the Halls community and have done so much.”

Previous Man of the Year Bob Crye introduced Hopkins, a former policeman and current volunteer police chaplain with Knoxville Police Department. Hopkins also volunteers as a mentor at Halls Middle School and several Halls elementary schools, is chaplain to the Halls High School football team and a driving force behind the Backpack Buddies program. He is the pastor of seniors and missions at Beaver Dam Baptist Church.

Sue Walker of Tindell’s Inc. was named a Lifetime Member of the Halls Business and Professional Association.

Sue Walker of Tindell’s Inc. was named a Lifetime Member of the Halls Business and Professional Association.“There are so many people involved in working in our community,” Hopkins said. “We serve in a great community in Halls.”
Outgoing HBPA president Michelle Wilson also made a special presentation, naming longtime HBPA board member Sue Walker of Tindell’s Inc. a Lifetime Member in the HBPA. “Sue Walker is the reason things happen on the HBPA board,” said Wilson. Afterward, Wilson passed the gavel to new HBPA president Robert Hubbs of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office. Wilson will continue on the board as the past president.

Keynote speaker Erik Ainge, former UT football player and sports radio personality, was delayed in the Knoxville Christmas Parade, but when he arrived his remarks echoed local excitement that former coach Phillip Fulmer has accepted the position of UT athletic director.“We’ve got our guy back,” said Ainge. “He’s the reason I chose to raise my family and make my home here.”Ainge said he hopes Fulmer will bring stability and wise decision-making back to the Vols football program.“There was so much noise in our decision process,” he said. “If we’re going to care this much about football, let’s make the conversation about that. There’s a guy involved now who’s going to make football decisions and make it about football.”
