The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) formally dedicated the new Special Agent De’Greaun ReShun Frazier TBI Crime Laboratory and Regional Headquarters at a groundbreaking ceremony. It will be located on 350 Smith Lane south of McKeller-Sipes Regional Airport.
TBI Director David Rausch and Sen. Ed Jackson, along with Gov. Bill Haslam and Lt. Gov. Randy McNally, announced that the name is in honor of TBI Special Agent Frazier, who was killed in the line of duty in 2016. Frazier‘s wife, Shannon, and his family were present and participated in the groundbreaking.
Gov. Haslam and Lt. Gov. McNally announced that Sen. Ed Jackson was instrumental in ensuring the project stayed in the budget plan and was constantly in contact with them concerning the progress for the project.
All West Tennessee law enforcement agencies will benefit from this centrally-located facility.
