Town Builds New Square Restroom Facilities

restrooms on square optAccording to the 2000 US Census, the Town of Collierville was home to around 31,872 residents – much different than the estimated 50,000 residents today. Facilities built in the late nineties, like the Town Square public restrooms, simply cannot efficiently accommodate the Town’s growing population.

Starting on March 10, 2017, the twenty-year-old Town Square restrooms will be out of service until the new facilities are built.

Help Prevent Crime--Lock Your Car Doors

Do You Know CPD BrochureAlthough Collierville is one of the safest cities in Tennessee, the Collierville Police Department wants to make sure that citizens are aware of the need to employ some common sense approaches to protecting their vehicles and valuables.

Approximately 8 out of every 10 vehicle burglaries that occur in Collierville could be prevented by simply locking the car doors.

For example, during the week of December 22, 2016 a series of auto burglaries occurred in the neighborhoods close to Six Crowns Street and White Road.
