Our Mission Statement

As City Court, we are a branch of the City of Dyersburg's Judicial System. Not only does City Court have the power to hear municipal ordinances but also have General Session's jurisdiction.

City Court records all dispositions including guilty pleas, dismissals and other forms of judgments; all of which are documented with the utmost accuracy and integrity.

Our mission is to be a part of the deterrence of crime. Through aiding other departments within the community, our hope is that we can bring about a better quality of life for the citizens of Dyersburg.
