The Protective Services Division was established 2012 and is one of the most unique divisions within the Tennessee Highway Patrol. This division is made up of two commands; the Executive Protection Unit and the Capitol Protection Unit. Troopers and officers within this division are responsible for operations pertaining to the protection of the governor, legislators, justices, and other dignitaries, as well as the State Capitol and state employees. The Protective Services Division also works with state agencies to help provide instruction on bomb threats, personal safety, mail handling procedures and their response to violent intruders.
