Working To Eliminate Litter

To help promote keeping litter picked up in Jackson County, Sheriff Marty Hinson and Keep Tennessee Beautiful representative Sheriff’s department Correctional Officer Sandy Warren traveled to the public schools donating a book entitled “Nancy and Sluggo Love Tennessee” promoting keeping Tennessee Beautiful.
