Clarksville Police DepartmentClarksville, TN – In an effort to reduce accidents and crime that occur along the US 41A corridor, from Boot Hill to State Line Road, all units within the Clarksville Police Department joined forces for a special operation targeting traffic offenders on October 28th and November 2nd, 2:00pm-10:00pm.

The majority of the 30 plus officers were from on-duty resources throughout the department. The primary goals were to target traffic offenses most likely to cause accidents, conduct drug interdiction, and develop leads/suspects within the areas identified through crime and traffic statistics.
