Collierville Police Offer Safety Tips in Light of Recent Robbery

The Collierville Police Department is investigating a robbery that occurred on Friday night (June 27) in Collierville. A victim was robbed in their driveway and shots were fired. Collierville Police are following leads and are focused on finding the individual/individuals involved in the robbery. "I am not convinced that this robbery was a random act," said Town Administrator James Lewellen. "I believe that the victim was targeted at their place of business and followed to their home in Collierville where the robbery occurred. This type of crime will not be tolerated in Collierville and I want to assure the citizens that we will not allow violent crime to take a foothold in our community."

Give Emergency Vehicles the Right of Way

On May 10, 2014, Nashville Police Officer Michael Petrina, 25 from Germantown, was struck and killed by a motorhome while directing traffic on Interstate 65. Every day, fire fighters, police officers, paramedics and other emergency personnel respond to calls for help, risking their lives to save others. They are required by state law to complete annual training on the proper way to respond to calls using lights and a siren, but we as citizens, can help make the emergency response of fire engines, ambulances and police vehicles safer.
