New Crossville Police headquarters dedicated

CROSSVILLE — The new home of the Crossville City Police Department was dedicated Saturday morning with two men recognized during the ceremony.

Crossville’s new police headquarters building, the former city hall, was named for the late Robert F. Foutch, who served as police chief for 11 years after rising to the rank of lieutenant in the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Long time city judge Tom Bean was honored by having the new city courtroom named in his honor. 

Crossville Mayor J.H. Graham said that the police should have a nice place to work and after years of not having enough space, the building should serve them well into the future. Graham said that while the population of Crossville was 11,000 residents, the population rises to 35,000 to 40,000 people on the streets during most days. 

Graham also praised Judge Tom Bean’s 30 years of service to the public as Crossville city judge. 

Other council members spoke adding their praises for the police department and Judge Bean. 

Crossville Police Chief David Beaty expressed his thanks to the council for helping the department and he added that the new home for the department should serve them for 30 to 40 years. 

Chief Beaty spoke briefly about Chief Foutch and called him an “icon of local law enforcement.” He said after serving in the Army, Foutch had joined the THP and risen to the rank of lieutenant before retiring and then serving as Crossville’s chief of police for 11 years. Beaty added that he was hired by Foutch and said he still missed him.

A plaque has been placed near the entrance to the police headquarters and was unveiled by Chief Foutch’s widow along with his children, grandchildren and even great-grandchildren. 

A number of retired members of the police department attended the ceremony.
