Slayden ran the police department from 1987-89, when he retired. A veteran of World War II, Slayden rose through the ranks of the department and eventually wrote the policy manual for the department.
Clarksville Police Department intelligence analyst Mary Buck told The Leaf-Chronicle Slayden penned some of his own memoirs and enjoyed woodworking as a sideline. Buck says Slayden made, to-scale, models of historic structures in Clarksville, and he once made a scale model of the farm occupied by the hit TV family, "The Waltons."
Neal-Tarpley-Parchman Funeral Home is handling arrangements for Slayden's funeral.
Visitation is Saturday from 4-7 p.m. and Sunday from 12 noon to 2 p.m. when services begin in the funeral home chapel.

Vanderbilt poll: Tennesseans oppose online tax
May 21, 2013 17:59 GMT
By ERIK SCHELZIG Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A new Vanderbilt University poll finds a majority of Tennesseans oppose the state enforcing online sales taxes, though respondents were split on whether the current system is fair to local businesses.
Fifty-five percent said that taxing online sales is a bad idea, while 38 percent said it would be good policy.
The U.S. Senate earlier this month passed a bill to empower states to collect sales taxes from Internet purchases, but the measure faces a tough sell in the House. The change is supported by Gov. Bill Haslam and fellow Republican U.S. Sens. Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker.
But Haslam enjoys a 63 percent approval rating among the 813 registered voters surveyed in the poll, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
