Mark Gwyn has been reappointed by Gov. Phil Bredesen to serve another term as director of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

Bredesen appointed Gwyn to his first six-year term as the agency’s director in 2004. He was selected from a pool of three candidates submitted by the five-member TBI nominating committee.

As director, Gwyn oversees 420 TBI employees across the state.

Gwyn has placed an emphasis on high tech surveillance methods, computer forensics and battling Internet crimes targeting children with the launch of a Cyber Crimes Unit.

“I’m honored to be reappointed to this position and appreciate Governor Bredesen’s confidence in my ability to continue the mission and the work of the TBI,” Gwyn said.

Who were the other names submitted or is that secret?

Do their agents still refuse to either tape record or video their
interviews with suspects. It's pretty much an accepted practice
all over the nation except for our own TBI.
