FGCC announces new Public Safety Chie

CROSSVILLE — Bob Weber, general manager of Fairfield Glade Community Club, is proud to announce that the search for a public safety chief has resulted in the hiring of Randy Hoover. Hoover will begin his new assignment on Monday, April 16.

Hoover started his law enforcement career in the U.S. Army Military Police after graduating from Clarkrange High School in Fentress County. He served three years in the Army that included over a year in Korea with an Honorable Discharge. Randy’s law enforcement education includes his graduation from the Army Military Police School, Tennessee Law Enforcement Police Academy, Tennessee Highway Patrol Academy, University of North Florida’s Accident Reconstruction School and Northwestern University Police Staff/Command College. He has served 32 years in the Tennessee Highway Patrol as a trooper, sergeant, lieutenant and captain, with a total of almost 37 years as a police officer.

In addition to several diplomas/certifications in the police and emergency field, Hoover has been awarded the “Officer of the Year Award,” “Policeman of the Year Award,” “Korean Service Medal,” “Army Commendation Medal,” and the “National Defense Medal.”

No stranger to Crossville and Cumberland County, Hoover has established relationships with the law enforcement and emergency personnel in our area who collaborate with the FG Public Safety Department to ensure proper coordination between organizations.

Randy has been married to Kathy Reynolds Hoover for 33 years. They have one daughter, Sarah Jo Hoover Bounds, a graduate in Marketing and Broadcast Communication from East Tennessee State University. Kathy and Randy live in Cumberland County, where they are active members of Memorial Baptist Church in Crossville.

We look forward to Randy leading the Public Safety Department as he brings a wealth of experience and professionalism. Randy is excited about continuing our track record of a very safe community while helping the FG residents and visitors.
