Crossville City Officer Jared South has been recognized as the November 2017 Officer of the Month. On November 18, 2017, Officer South observed a suspicious vehicle in the area of US Hwy 127 South.

Additionally, Officer South seized over $600 in US currency, which is believed to be proceeds from the sale of narcotics.

No Nit Policy Remains In Cumb. Co. Schools
Crossville Chronicle/Peg Broadcasting News Thursday February 15, 2018

The No Nit Policy will remain in place in Cumberland County schools, the Crossville Chronicle reports. Because of the large number of students who have missed school due to lice, the Board of Education had considered letting pupils return to school as long as no live lice were found on their persons. Lice are not considered a health hazard, but more of a nuisance. However, after the policy committee recommended no changes to the district's current lice policy, the BOE voted to keep the No Nit stipulation. That means students will not be allowed back in school until they are totally free of lice eggs.
