Domestic Disturbance

On Saturday, July 9, Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) responded to a domestic incident where a subject barricaded himself inside a residence. The SWAT team was called, and the suspect surrendered. An email was sent to residents regarding TLA’s involvement in situations involving law enforcement agencies having jurisdiction, mass communication decisions, and the authority of the on-scene commander, as well as the primary concern for responding Officer safety. If you missed the email, you can read it on our website in the Archived Emails area (www.landings.org/archived-emails).

Chatham Emergency Services (CES) and CCPD were already on the scene. The victim stated that the other driver left the scene after saying he was busy and needed to go. The man’s license plate was shared with CCPD, which is investigating.

Disturbing the Peace

No further complaints were received.
