POLICY DEVELOPMENT | … Recently, a Deputy was accused of a serious crime. This allegation is under investigation by the State. However, we were required to conducted a departmental investigation. Following the “ICE” policy guidelines, we navigated the incident observing the Deputy’s rights and protecting the Department’s interest. The internal investigation resulted in an employment termination without encroachment into criminal proceedings. This would have been almost impossible without a well written policy. Guidance on this one incident was well worth the purchase price. Thanks again,

Wayland Cothron, Chief Deputy, Trousdale County Sheriff’s Office
