The Spring Hill Police Department released its annual report on Thursday, in which it details statistics on it’s almost 40,000 calls for service during the 2017-18 fiscal year.

“All sworn officers and civilian employees of the department are committed to providing professional services to the citizens of Spring Hill and its visitors,” wrote Chief of Police Don Brite in the report. “We will continue to strive with this commitment in an effort to provide a safe community to reside.”

As Spring Hill’s population continues to grow, with some estimates saying its population may soon surpass Brentwood’s soon, and other estimates naming Spring Hill as the single fastest growing area in the state, police are continuing to adjust and improve their efficiency to keep up with the city’s growing needs.

“Spring Hill has experienced significant growth both in business and residential in recent years,” Brite wrote. “All indicators suggest this growth will continue in the future. With that, the challenge is for the police department to continue to look for ways to provide services by utilizing technology, training, crime prevention methods, and taking a proactive approach that will continue to keep our crime rate at low levels. By working with other agencies and having an open communication with the citizens of Spring Hill, together we can achieve this challenge.”

Below is a breakdown of the data revealed in the report.
