Friends, co-workers and city leaders gathered Friday to say goodbye to police officer Adam Southern.    “No one wants to see him (Southern) go,”  Caryville Mayor Bobby Stooksbury said.  Southern has served on the CPD force for more than two years.

Caryville Chief of Police Brian Keeton expressed to those gathered in the council meeting room, “It’s been fantastic.  Adam’s a hard worker.  He really stepped up to help us out.”
