With spring upon us, we are starting to have complaints about ATV, UTV, Golf Carts, etc. In many case, these machines are not road legal regardless if you have a license plate issued or not. You must have a windshield, signals, lights, seat belts, driver’s license, and proof of insurance. Missing any of these items may result in a citation. We receive numerous complaints in Mason’s Boat Dock area. We have been coordinating with THP and there will be strict enforcement of these violations. Please voluntarily comply with State Law and do not ride these vehicles on the roadway. If you choose to violate the law, we will not be giving warnings. This post is it…

At approximately 4 PM the Humphreys County Sheriff's Office received a call of a self-inflicted gunshot victim at the Co-Op located on Highway 13 South near Waverly. Detective Brian Baker was The first Deputy Sheriff to arrive on the scene where he found a 36-year-old male with a gunshot wound to the upper leg. The injury had been caused by high velocity rifle round and the victim was bleeding profusely. The victim was removing a loaded rifle from his vehicle for the purpose of unloading it when the weapon discharged striking him in the thigh at near point blank range. Co-Op employees were doing a terrific job of providing first aide until help arrived. Once Detective Baker arrived on scene he quickly assessed the situation and applied his issued tourniquet to stop the bleeding. Minutes later paramedics from AMR ambulance service arrived and took over treatment of the patient and transferred him to the hospital. Sheriff's Corporal Daniel Buchanan also arrived and assisted. The quick action by the Co-Op employees along with Detective Baker in applying the tourniquet likely prevented loss of life.

We have had the opportunity to play with a Ring doorbell/ camera system lately. There are many different systems out that operate in a similar manner. HCSO is not advocating the Ring system over any of the others. Technological advancements are constantly evolving and therefore we want to help you keep your family and property safe. These types of instant live feed camera systems are a tremendous way of doing just that. The cameras have motion detection systems and will notify you if someone is on your property. They offer a lot of customization in their settings as well. Take a look at their product line and I am sure that you find something that will help provide the security you deserve. The folks at Ring have provided a $25 off coupon were you to select their product line. See the attached picture for details.

We received this message today about the actions of one of our deputies. Just another example of our commitment to the public we serve: Sunday afternoon my son was on his way back to school in Martin. He had a flat tire on I-40 mm 140. I called Humphreys County Sheriff's office and a deputy arrived to help him. I don't know her name and he couldn't remember but I just wanted to say THANK YOU! I was concerned for his safety and this officer helped him by making sure he was safe. You are all appreciated!

This is to make you aware of the possibility for severe weather in Tennessee Thursday. The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed West Tennessee and parts of Middle Tennessee into a Moderate risk category for severe weather. See the attached graphic (Located in the comments) Don’t let the term Moderate fool you, though, as Moderate is the second-highest of the SPC’s risk levels. This means the atmospheric conditions in West and Middle Tennessee on Thursday will create a favorable environment for strong tornadoes, large hail, and damaging winds. And the strong to severe storms may also push as far as East Tennessee. WHAT SHOULD YOU DO? • The most important preparedness tip for severe weather is to stay informed to its potential. Listen to NOAA Weather Radio, watch TV or listen to the radio for weather updates and warnings. • Consider the potential for severe weather if you are traveling and have a plan so you’ll know where to take cover. • If you’re outside and your hear thunder, go indoors immediately. • If you’re at home and told to take cover due to a tornado warning, go to a basement or innermost, first floor room in your home. • Know the location and route to your office or building’s tornado shelter. TEMA will be staffing our State Emergency Operations Center early Thursday morning, and monitoring the severe weather’s approach and impact from our 24-hour Watch Point. We will be providing updates on significant weather developments as needed and coordinating with many State and Local partners if necessary to support any requests for assistance. Most importantly, we want you to know about the threat so you have situational awareness to keep yourself and your family safe. Be Safe Out There!
