Smith Resigns as Trenton Police Chief


Trenton Police Chief Christy Smith is leaving the City of Trenton Police Department.

Police Commissioner Kirk Forshee said Smith has resigned as of the end of November and will be taking a new position with the Lookout Mountain Judicial Circuit District Attorney as an Investigator.

An interim Chief has not been announced and commissioners will be deciding on what the next step in hiring a replacement for Smith will be.

Smith has been the Trenton Police Chief for three and a half years. Among the many things the department has done, Smith created the annual Touch-A-Truck event that also helps outfit area students with school supplies and Silver Bells, a Christmas program which collects and delivers gifts and necessities to Senior Citizens in Trenton and Dade.

“She has done a great job as Chief and will be missed,” Forshee said. “We wish her well in her future endeavors.”
