Police protectionEdit

Since Hampshire is unincorporated, no government body represents the town personally to provide a police service. The Maury County Sheriff's Office maintains all law enforcement duties. Constables also have concurrent jurisdiction with the sheriff; however, they rarely exercise such authority.

Fire protectionEdit

Hampshire is protected by the Hampshire Fire Department, division of the Maury County Fire Department.

EventsEdit

Hampshire recently began its annual "Hampshire Jubilee and Festival," which includes vendors, food trucks, and live music.
