The Tennessee Farm TRACS (Traceability Reporting for the Agricultural Community System) program allows the public to report and to stay informed of agricultural crime in their community. When the Ag Crime Unit monitors elevated levels of agricultural crime in a given location or when it requests public support or tips in solving crime, an alert will be forwarded to persons enrolled in Farm TRACS.
