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.
