Perhaps the greatest safety concern for all of us in the last ten days has been getting out of our driveways! But take heart – this too shall pass.
Aside from the snow and ice, a check of the Knox County Sheriff crime map shows no reported incidents for our neighborhood so far this year. A national site (www.CrimeReports.com) allows you to type in any address anywhere in the USA but is not nearly as current as the Knox County Sheriff site.
I have heard of a couple of incidents by word of mouth. If you are a crime victim, please file a report with the Knox County Sheriff. You can reach them at 865-215-2432.
Thanks to those who have posted on this site about suspicious activity. Our eyes are probably the best deterrent to crime on “the quiet side of the river”
