The Clarksville Police Department has brought back "Behind the Badge" in a completely different way, by giving the citizens of Clarksville an opportunity to meet our officers up close and personal. Showing that the badge doesn't solely define our officers and that they also have dreams, goals and hobbies outside of their daily duties. Behind the Badge will spotlight our men and women who protect us, which will help our community to get to know our officers in their personal lives as well.
Investigator v. crOSBY
"I joined the Clarksville Police Department in 2017. I love helping others; whether it's teaching them how to install their car seat, giving a stuffed animal to an upset child at a crash, or letting drivers use my Hot Wheels to show me what happened at a crash. I try to have fun every day at work and I really enjoy working as a crash investigator. My goal is to be a good example for the citizens of the city I love. I understand that I can't please everyone and sometimes I have to taxi someone to jail, but I still treat everyone fairly. My hobbies include playing video games, painting, and collecting 80’s records. My favorite video would have to be any Zelda game (except Wind Waker)."
Officer I. SZCZERBIAK
"I joined the Clarksville Police Department in May of 2006. I joined the Clarksville Police Department because I wanted to make my home as safe as I could after being overseas (military). I have been trying my best ever since I started. I enjoy playing video games and relaxing with my friends. My daughter and I enjoy watching the rain together and can spend all day jumping in puddles. I have also been to a few comic cons!."
DETECTIVE C. JACKSON
"I decided to join the Clarksville Police Department in 2017. I joined the Army in 2004, and thought it would be great to further my service to the community and provide my family with a great place to live. My hobbies include working on cars, eating exotic foods, and traveling".
OFFICER B. tribbett
"I joined the Clarksville Police Department in February of 2016. I worked in our dispatch center for about a year and a half before my dream of becoming an officer came true. I became a Police Officer in 2019 because I have always wanted to help my community. It’s been my dream since I was a kid! Outside of working, I love riding my motorcycle because It’s a stress reliever and relaxing for me. I am able to see so much more on my motorcycle, then when I am in a car.
My father inspires me to be the man that I am today. We are 100% alike. He has always been one of the hardest working people I know. He means more to me than anyone will ever know. I am motivated every day I come to work. Every day presents a new opportunity to learn, to grow as a person, and to help the community."
