Collierville Police Officers Stop by for an Evening of Community Fellowship

On the Sunday night of September 25, Collierville police cars lined the streets in the quiet neighborhood of Tara Oaks. Normally, the sight of multiple squad cars is alarming, but on this night, it was different.

The Town of Collierville is partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Tennessee District to conduct the 10th National Prescription drug “Take-Back” program Saturday, September 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Collierville Police will be collecting expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs at CPD Headquarters, 156 N.

Collierville Police Offer Home Solicitation Safety Tips

Door to door solicitors come in many shapes and sizes. These solicitors can offer deals on magazines, energy audits, opportunities to sign petitions, cookies, and much more. The solicitation ordinance, effective October 9, 2015, allows commercial solicitors to conduct door-to-door sales after obtaining a permit from the Town. Solicitors are also required to wear a Town-issued identification badge while working; as a resident you have the right to ask to see an ID badge if it is not clearly displayed. Non-commercial solicitors such as church groups, scouts or charitable organizations do not need a permit or identification badges.
