Program helps those dealing with drunk driving charges

Often, when Tennessee drivers have been arrested for driving under the influence, it is difficult to get to get their lives back on track. The drunk driving charge may lead to the loss of a driver's license, the inability to keep a job and court fees that result from this cycle of crime. Many ex-offenders are simply looking for a way to break the pattern. A Memphis organization has been established to give individuals like this an opportunity for a fresh start.

Parents in Tennessee may often hear their children say that they are bored and don't have anything to do. This declaration is frequently met with activity suggestions or lists of chores.

Some police officers depend on citizens' lack of understanding of their civil rights during traffic stops. For example, in most states, including Tennessee, police cannot search a vehicle without a search warrant unless the driver grants permission.

Once police find something incriminating in a car, that driver may face serious consequences, such as drug charges.

Tennessee's drug offenders need treatment, not incarceration

If you suffer from a serious drug addiction, you may understand that addiction can lead you to do things you may otherwise never consider.

An increasingly popular program available in some parts of Tennessee strives to help addicts kick addiction and return to a life free of drugs and crime.

Theft and property crimes: Tennessee sees increase in gun thefts

The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms reports that Tennessee is experiencing an increase in the number of gun thefts.
