JOHNSON CITY – The Tennessee Department of Correction’s “Operation Clean Up” continued today at the Johnson City Probation and Parole field office. Officers and Special Agents with TDOC, along with officers from the Johnson City Police Department, conducted intensive vehicle searches in the parking lot of the field office. Today’s operation resulted in the search of over 50 vehicles.

“Enhancing public safety through effective community supervision is part of our mission,” said Probation Parole Manager Emily Rogers. “This is just one of the strategies in place to ensure our offenders are abiding by the rules and guidelines of their supervision and hold them accountable when they deviate from those rules.”

Today’s operation was very successful, resulting in six arrests, the issuance of six citations and the confiscation of 4.2 grams of meth, 1 gram of cocaine and 72.7 grams of marijuana. This operation illustrates TDOC’s commitment to Tri-Cities’ communities by ensuring offenders on supervision in northeast Tennessee are held accountable for their actions.

TDOC’s Probation Parole Officers, Strike Force and K-9 Units, and Correctional Emergency Response Team (CERT) Officers from the Northeast Correctional Complex led the massive undertaking. In addition, the Department would like to especially thank the Johnson City Police Department for the support and assistance during this operation.
