Dyersburg Police Chief Steve Isbell stated, “Law enforcement work is dangerous, and our officers never know what they will face each day protecting our community, but to have an individual make such bold statements to cause harm to our officers, to include photos of the officers and their significant others, is beyond reprehensible. We will not tolerate threats on our officers, and we will not be intimidated.”
