Holly Springs police rely on tips from persons in the community to help with investigating crimes in the Holly Springs and Marshall County area. Anyone who has information regarding any crime is asked to contact the Holly Springs Police Department at 662-252-2122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-729-2169. Callers do not have to give their name when reporting a crime and may be entitled to a reward of up to $1,000 if a crime reported is solved based on a tip to Crime Stoppers.
Knife safety is very important for people of all ages. Accidental injuries may happen quickly and may be quite severe if proper attention and care is not used while handling knives.
Never try to grab a falling knife. If the knife is falling, move away from it and let it fall. Make sure you are far enough away from it. Trying to catch a knife that slips may be a reflex but it can be very dangerous and may actually be worse than letting the knife fall to the floor.
Always cut away from your body or slice away from your body rather than towards your body.
