Behind the Badge

The Clarksville Police Department has brought back "Behind the Badge" in a completely different way, by giving the citizens of Clarksville an opportunity to meet our officers up close and personal. Showing that the badge doesn't solely define our officers and that they also have dreams, goals and hobbies outside of their daily duties. Behind the Badge will spotlight our men and women who protect us, which will help our community to get to know our officers in their personal lives as well.

"I joined the Clarksville Police Department on October 1st, 2000. Before I became an Officer I had an internship while attending APSU, and was exposed to the different areas of police work. I got to see what patrol did, how investigations worked, and came to the realization that the department offered many different areas to work in.  I enjoy building trust and relationships with the communities we serve. I enjoy running and lifting weights. It gives me an outlet to release negative energy".

"I joined the Clarksville Police Department in 2017 because I wanted to build a sense of comradery between the community and the department. Outside of police work, I enjoy cooking and baking because it is therapeutic. My favorite dessert and thing to bake is cheesecake."

"I decided to join the Clarksville Police Department in 2017. I joined the Army in 2004, and thought it would be great to further my service to the community and provide my family with a great place to live. My hobbies include working on cars, eating exotic foods, and traveling".

"I joined the Clarksville Police Department in February of 2016. I worked in our dispatch center for about a year and a half before my dream of becoming an officer came true. I became a Police Officer in 2019 because I have always wanted to help my community. It’s been my dream since I was a kid! Outside of working, I love riding my motorcycle because It’s a stress reliever and relaxing for me. I am able to see so much more on my motorcycle, then when I am in a car.

My father inspires me to be the man that I am today. We are 100% alike. He has always been one of the hardest working people I know. He means more to me than anyone will ever know. I am motivated every day I come to work. Every day presents a new opportunity to learn, to grow as a person, and to help the community."
