The Sevierville Police Department has scheduled a 12-hour Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) class for women on October 4, 11, 18, and 25 from 6PM-9PM. Participants must attend all classes; no make-up classes will be available. All classes will be held at the Sevierville Civic Center in the Municipal Complex. The class is free of charge and is open to all interested women (limited to 15 participants). The purpose of the class is to develop and enhance self-defense options, so they may become viable considerations to a woman if she is attacked.
Sevierville is in the process of making changes to the Winterfest program. Winterfest has proven to be a successful program for all of us and, as we move forward, we will build upon this success to make the program even better.
As part of the program changes, Sevierville announces the elimination of the long-standing Winterfest Kick Off Event normally held in early November in the Sevierville Municipal Complex.
The Sevierville Police Department is proud to announce they are offering their Citizens Police Academy this fall. The purpose of the academy is to provide an opportunity for adult residents to learn about basic police work and to get to know the officers protecting and serving our community.
The academy will meet 6:00PM-9:00PM on Thursday evenings from September 13 - November 15, 2018. The program is free.
The City of Sevierville Police Department (300 Gary Wade Blvd. in the Municipal Complex) will have a certified child car seat technician on duty this Sunday, August 19 from 10AM-2PM. The technician will perform a free safety check and answer any questions you may have. And for parents who are unable to afford a new car seat, the SPD will provide one at no cost.
The beginning of a new school year is a great time to ensure that your children are as safe as they can be while traveling in your vehicle. The City of Sevierville is committed to helping parents and caregivers make sure their children ride as safely as possible - every trip, every time.
Area students will return to school on Tuesday, August 14, causing pedestrian and vehicle traffic to increase significantly. The flashing yellow school zone lights, indicating the presence of school children around schools, will be activated soon to remind drivers that the school year is about to begin.
“The overall goal is to get our children to and from school safely. Please help us keep our children safe by following the school zone traffic laws,” said Sevierville Police Chief Joseph Manning.
