Dresden Police Chief Christopher Crocker announced his resignation to the Dresden Mayor and Alderman’s Council on November 7.

Crocker received a job opportunity with the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) and after careful consideration, he accepted the position.

In his resignation letter, Crocker said: “It has been a pleasure to work for the City of Dresden full-time and part-time for about 11 years in total. I was lucky to have a great group of guys in the police department and a boss as dedicated to her job as Jennifer Branscum.

Crocker went on to say that he was preparing Lt. Bryan Chandler for the transition of his duties. Chandler will take over as acting chief of police until the new council of mayor and alderman votes on a new chief of police.

Crocker has been Dresden’s police chief for the past two years and was acting police chief before that. Crocker began his career with the Dresden Police Department in 2011 for just over four years before moving to the Weakley County Sheriff’s Office for four and a half years before returning to Dresden.

Crocker grew up in Carroll County and is the son of Steve and Anita Crocker of McKenzie. Crocker has lived in County Weakley for 14 years.

Crockers’ last day of employment will be November 25, 2022.
