Interim Sheriff Jerone Holt wishes to commend FTO Derek Smith for an outstanding job of being vigilant in protecting our citizens and families. FTO Smith on 09/23/2020, while patrolling his assigned area zone which is just off Hwy 48 South on Moore Hollow Rd in the early morning hours of darkness, came upon a 4-wheeler sitting for no apparent reason alongside the roadway. Through FTO Smith’s probing examination, he exposed 2 men, a truck and 2 trailers nearby. FTO Smith’s investigation revealed the 2 men were in possession of stolen property from thefts involving Humphreys County. Interim Sheriff Holt states this is an excellent prime example of how his implementation of countywide zoning coverage was enacted several years ago in order to have deputies off the main roadways and patrolling our back county roads at all hours of the day. Interim Sheriff Holt has firmly believed while most of our friends and neighbors are asleep, criminals are out prowling about looking for an opportunity to victimize anyone.
FTO Derek Smith has been with the Sheriff’s Office since March of 2011. Working his way up through the departmental progression to his current position of Field Training Officer (FTO) which is responsible for the field training of each new patrol recruit assigned to his shift within the patrol division.
Interim Sheriff Jerone Holt along with the Dickson County Sheriff’s Office would like to congratulate FTO Derek Smith for his excellent work!
