Two dozen Tennessee law enforcement officers have become the newest graduates of the TBI State Academy, built as a professional and specialized training ground for public safety professionals who want to expand their education and training in the criminal justice field.
Each year, one student is honored with the prestigious Director’s Award. This year’s recipient is Investigator Sam Davidson, from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.
The Academy is held at Tennessee Fire Service and Codes Enforcement Academy in Bell Buckle.
Other local officers that graduated include Detective Sergeant John Dale Sweeney (Bedford County Sheriff’s Office) and Detective Nathaniel Lee Everhart (Shelbyville Police Department)
