The city of
Red Bank and American Traffic Solutions have installed camera
enforcement at Signal Mtn. Road and Dayton Blvd. and at
Ashland Terrance and Dayton blvd. This program is designed
to enforce our Red Light Traffic laws 24hrs a day. Our goal
with this program is to control red light violations and
to make these major intersections safer for everyone.
(1) How does
the Red-light camera system work?
A Red Light Camera System is connected to the traffic
signal and to sensors buried in the pavement before the
crosswalk or white stop line. The system continuously
monitors the traffic signal. After the traffic signal
has turned red and, any vehicle passing over the sensors
triggers the camera to take two pictures. The system also
supplies a video of the violation which is viewed by a
certified traffic officer before being mailed out to the
(2) The light
was yellow when I entered the intersection.
A citation is only issued when the images clearly show
the vehicle crossing the intersection during the red phase
of the traffic light. The traffic light must be red in
(3) Will I
get Points? Will this affect my auto insurance?
No, this data is not available to insurance companies.
Since penalties to this system are monetary only, no points
apply; as opposed to a red-light ticket physically issued
by a law enforcement officer; in which case all penalties
apply (Fines, costs, points, etc.).
(4) How is a violation processed?
Specialized image scanners zoom in tightly on the license
plate of the captured image and then the DMV data is referenced
to see if the plate matches the car's description on record.
If it does match and all legal conditions are met in the
two photographs, a ticket will be sent by mail to the
owner of the violating vehicle. The violations are processed
by American Traffic Solutions and the Red Bank Police

murder, serious assault and any other offense that requires
complex detection. They are responsible for acting upon
intelligence received and then building a case, from analysis
of the initial incident through to arrest and prosecution
of the suspects.
The Red Bank
Police Department uses the latest technology in Forensic
Mapping. The Topcon GPT-3007W was purchased through the
assistance of federal grants. Officers received specialized
training on the multiple uses of this equipment. The equipment
allows officers to accurately diagram crime scenes in a
timely manner and is used by both the Traffic Division and
Major Crime Division. The diagrams produced by the equipment
aid the department in investigations and prosecutions.
The K-9 Unit
is headed by Officer Shane Dockery and our dog Ann. K-9
Ann is a full blooded Labrador retriever, purchased from
the Drexler School for dogs, located in Elkhart, Indiana.
Ann is trained in narcotic detection. In September 2005
Officer Dockery went to Elkhart, IN for two weeks to be
trained with K-9 Ann. During training he learned how Ann
reacts when there is narcotics present in a vehicle or an
area that is being searched. As the Red Bank Police Departments
K-9 Unit, Officer Dockery and K-9 Ann are dedicated to drug
enforcement in our city.
Divisions' main goal is the safety of all people who operate
on or around the roadways of the City of Red Bank. In order
to obtain this objective, the Traffic Division is always

The Red Bank
Narcotics Division is under the command of a Lieutenant
and directly supervised by a Sergeant. The division is comprised
of two investigators, of which both are also assigned to
a federally sponsored multi-agency methamphetamine task
force as well as their regular narcotic assignments.
The Narcotics Division is responsible for the investigation
of illicit drug activity in accordance with Federal and
State Statutes as well as local ordinances. The means by
which this is accomplished varies, along with the techniques
that are employed. At times it is feasible to identify the
activity and affect an arrest immediately, while in other
instances, long arduous investigations are required which
may employ the use of confidential informants, undercover
officers, and the general cooperation of the community.

Bank community while working to continually provide improved
and responsive police services, giving our community a safe
and secure environment in which to live. We are committed,

The Vice Division
is comprised of a sergeant and two investigators. Members
of this unit often conceal their identity in order to mingle
with and infiltrate the criminal element. Their appearance
and demeanor are more similar to the people they investigate
than to police officers. Though they are the least conspicuous,
these investigators contribute a great deal to the quality
of life in our city. The Vice Division has developed an
excellent working relationship with their counterparts in
neighboring cities and counties, as well as with State and
Additional responsibilities of the Vice Division include
monitoring the City's massage businesses, bars, enforcing
gambling and liquor laws, and participating in virtually
any undercover assignment to help the Police Department

the department. Members of our team are selected based on
experience, training, firearms proficiency, and leadership
skills. Members of the team receive or have received specialized
training from several sources including A.T.F, the U.S.
military, other local S.W.A.T. teams and state agencies.
Team members train on a variety of scenarios which include
high risk warrants/entries (business, schools and residential),
mobile takedowns and woodland operations.
The team members
undergo a regular training regiment to maintain a high level
of proficiency in highly technical firearms tactics, and
up to date S.R.T. /S.W.A.T. tactics.
The goal of the Red Bank Police Department is to provide
state-of-the-art in-service training that addresses contemporary
policing practices and offer contemporary, specialized schools
that meet the ever-changing needs of internal and external
law enforcement personnel. The objective will be to develop
a useful curriculum aimed at specific units within the department
and to scrutinize lesson plans for diverse specialized schools
to ensure that they meet standards.
The police department is under the rules of the Peace Officer
Standards and Training commission. All fulltime officers
are required to attend forty hours of In-Service Training
yearly. Required training consists of Emergency Vehicle
Operations, Firearms, and Child Sex Abuse.
The Red Bank Police Department instituted a volunteer reserve
program in 2003. The department currently has ten reserve
officers. The reserve officers receive eighty hours of training
before they begin to work. After their training, they will
work thirty days in a field-training program. After this
is completed, the reserve officers follow the rule of P.O.S.T.
working no more than 20 hours a week or no more than 100
hours a month. The reserve officers are responsible for
the special events in the City of Red Bank such as the jubilee,
Halloween bash, fall festival, and our Christmas event.

Incident Based Reporting
TIBRS was implemented
to heighten the effectiveness and accuracy of the Uniform
Crime Reports. The UCR System was established in1930 and
was a nationwide, voluntary program consisting of local,
state and federal agencies reporting crime statistics in
summary fashion. The Red Bank Police Department has participated
in the UCR program since the 1970s and TIBRS since it's
inception in 1997.
The Crime Statistics are published annually by the Federal
government in Crime in the United States. Additional information
on the Tennessee Incident Based Reporting System is available
on the State of Tennessee website.
The State of Tennessee sets forth required training for
each agency and a Records Agency Coordinator (RAC) ensures
that we are in compliance with the rules. The RAC attends
training sponsored by the State of Tennessee on an annual
basis and is responsible for uniform and consistent crime
The Terminal Agency Coordinator (TAC) is also a representative
of Red Bank Police Department with training required by
the State and the FBI in order to access the National Crime
Computer (NCIC) and the Tennessee information system (TIES).

Bureau of Investigation on a regular schedule to ensure
