Chief of Police Fred Fletcher
On June 12th of 2014 Fred Fletcher was sworn in as the Chief of Police for the City of Chattanooga. Chattanooga Chief of Police Fred Fletcher has 20 years of law enforcement experience in Austin, Texas – the second safest large city in the nation. In his former leadership position, Fletcher implemented community outreach programs to improve the relationships between police officers and citizens. His hands-on approach to leadership built bridges both inside and outside of the police force. His dedication to crime reduction produced significant results, including a dramatic decline in property crime, the closure of open-air drug markets throughout the community, and a 14 percent reduction in violent crime.
Now, as the Chief of Police for the City of Chattanooga, Fletcher has changed not only how the Chattanooga Police Department does business, but how community and police partner to solve problems.
Fletcher not only brought experience to Chattanooga, but he also brought along his own personal philosophies on effective policing. Since taking office the Chattanooga Police Department has dramatically reduced overall crime citywide by 11 percent in 2015 with 1,386 less crimes reported than the previous year. In 2016, the City of Chattanooga experienced 856 fewer crimes than 2015, a 7.62% reduction in overall crime.
