Technical Services Unit
This unit, known as the TSU, is responsible for developing and utilizing technology in support of TBI’s investigative and homeland security responsibilities. The TSU also investigates cybercrimes related to children. Every year, Agents assigned to the Internet Crimes against Children Task Force for Tennessee open dozens of cases related to identity theft, cyber scams, and the manufacturing and distribution of child pornography.
Uniformed Officers Unit
The Uniformed Officer Unit is comprised of 11 commissioned uniformed law enforcement officers who are cross-trained as certified emergency medical technicians capable of providing aid and comfort to sick and injured persons on Bureau properties until additional medical help and emergency transportation arrives. The unit’s primary role, however, is to provide security to TBI facilities, specifically the Nashville headquarters. Occasionally, officers will provide support to Agents in the field with searches or arrest round-ups of wanted criminals.
