Since 1949, May has been observed as Mental Health Month in the United States to increase mental health awareness. One in five people will experience a mental illness during their lifetime, and we all face challenges in life that can impact our mental health.
The following is a message from Sevierville Police Chief Joseph Manning.
I’d like to take this opportunity to recognize National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week. During this week, police, fire, sheriff's offices, E-911 centers and more are celebrating the strength and commitment of their public safety dispatchers.
We are not able to receive old and unused prescription and over the counter drugs at the Police Department due to the closure of the lobby to the public. When the lobby is reopened, we will be able to utilize our Drug Take Back cabinet again.
The City of Sevierville will keep residents informed of any changes to City services and facility schedules in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Currently, ALL City services remain in place. The following facilities are closed indefinitely:
The Child Car Safety Seat Check event scheduled for this Saturday, March 21 at the Dairy Queen on Dolly Parton Parkway has been cancelled. The Police Department will instead offer individual appointments.
“In an effort to avoid crowds at this time as recommended by the CDC and also to make it more convenient for parents to have their child car safety seats checked, parents can simply call to make an appointment,” said SPD Chief Joseph Manning.
To make an appointment, please call 865-868-1866 and leave your name and contact number. An officer will promptly return your call and schedule an appointment.
