Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security officials have placed Trooper Tommie Boleyn on discretionary leave with pay, effective Monday, pending an investigation by the department’s Inspectional Services Bureau. 

The investigation stems from allegations that Trooper Boleyn violated Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) policies and procedures during an on-duty Aug. 31 incident in Shelbyville. All departmental equipment including weapons, badges and commission card were secured pending the investigation. 

Trooper Boleyn, 48, started his second term with the Highway Patrol in November of 2009. Boleyn was initially hired in July of 2000; however, he resigned after nearly eight years with the agency before returning in 2009.

Trooper Boleyn was assigned to the THP Lawrenceburg District during both terms. He has worked in Bedford, Marshall and Lincoln counties, where he is currently stationed.

It is the Department of Safety and Homeland Security’s policy to warn, suspend, demote or dismiss any employee whenever just or legal cause exists. Employees shall not commit any act that would reflect discredit upon themselves or the Department while on or off duty.
