The Commercial Appeal reports (http://bit.ly/ULS14a ) that 19 Memphis officers and two civilian employees have been arrested this year.

Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron said four police officers, two trainees and one civilian employee arrested this year. Nashville has about 1,000 fewer police officers compared to Memphis.
