I have noticed for the past several months in the city limits of Springfield, State troopers are everywhere writing tickets. What does our city policemen do if the troopers are doing traffic stops? I can see patroling highways, but I do not understand patroling cities such as Springfield, Greenbrier and Ridgetop.Any sensible answers would be appreciated.

Its not only Springfield but all over the county. I saw Sheriff writing tickets on both sides of Hwy. 41 last night south of town near Greenbrier.

Its not just in Springfield. Its in Cheatham Co as well in Ashland City and yesterday the 30th, they were all up in Pleasant View. Then I saw a PV policeman just sitting in his car doing nothing . Who is getting the money for these tickets? I was out on the 21st in PV and the same thing. I was told by someone that they have this DUI quota t get some $1,000.00 bonus. If thats so then thats just all wrong.

If this is the answer, it is wrong.Someone said they are looking for seat belt offenders, to give them a reason to seach your car and driver. This is not what I thought state troopers were hired to do. City police should patrol the city, state troopers should be on the interstates.

I think they should remove at least four of his five stars until he proves his capabilities in law enforcement. So far he ain't hitting on jack. Drugs and illegal possession of weapons is more dangerous than me not "buckling up". "Yes, Chief Thompson, there is a Southtown".
