An off duty Cumberland County deputy was flown by Lifestar to U.T. Medical Center following an accident yesterday. Officials say Greg Green was working at a home as part of his business, Plateau Seamless Guttering, when a ladder he was on slipped. Green fell to the ground and the impact resulted in severe injuries to his neck. Prayers are requested for Deputy Green.
Deputy Green originally began his law enforcement career on June 6, 1992 with the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department. Through the years he has served with the sheriff’s department and with the Crossville Police Department. Deputy Green is currently assigned to the patrol division and is a SWAT team operator with the sheriff’s office.
“He is dedicated to serving our community and does his job very well,” said Cumberland County Sheriff Casey Cox. “Deputy Green and I have worked most of our career together. It is an honor to work along side of him, but it is even more of an honor to call Greg a true friend. He loves his community and truly loves his profession. I ask everyone to keep him, his wife and their family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”
