Is the TBI DUI testing process a profit center?

We have to have a lot of trust for law enforcement. From the nature of many arrests, where in some cases, the arresting officer may be the only witness, to relying on lab tests performed by state crime labs, the average citizen has to just accept that police, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) agents and crime lab technicians are all following the law and doing their job correctly.

The THP wants zero highway fatalities in Tennessee

The Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) has a goal. When you think of sports, usually the object is to score as many goals as possible. For the THP, the goal is zero. The zero is the number of fatal traffic accidents that occur on the roads and highways of Tennessee.

If you are asleep at the wheel, can you also be DUI?

A man was arrested last week on a DUI. That is not that remarkable a fact. That he was arrested for his fifth DUI was not the most remarkable element of the arrest. What most people will find interesting in this case is that he was arrested while asleep behind the wheel.

Increases in Chattanooga and Tennessee DUI arrests

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) announced that DUI arrests increased in Chattanooga, both by local police and Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP). The report also showed more arrests across the state, with 29,554 in 2014, which was up by 639 from 2013.
