Tennessee state troopers trained in domestic preparedness response


32 members of the Highway Patrol complete Homeland Security Training

thpcar2Nashville – Thirty-two Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) Troopers recently completed homeland security training at the Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP), located in Anniston, Alabama. The CDP is operated by the United States Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and is the only federally-charged Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) training facility in the nation.

Mobile Field Force Law Enforcement Strike Team Troopers from all eight THP districts across the state recently underwent the week-long domestic preparedness training. Strike Teams respond to incidents that call for special training and added manpower. Incidents include disasters, manhunts, search and rescue and traffic crashes involving hazardous materials.

“THP’s Strike Teams provide critical resources and stabilizing service after a disaster has struck. Troopers serving on Strike Teams are there to help restore order to an affected area as soon as possible,” said THP Colonel Mike Walker. “The enhanced WMD training provided by the CDP at no cost to the state equips THP’s Strike Teams with the interdisciplinary training that enables them to serve the immediate needs of communities and citizens in a disaster.”

Picking the right financial adviser, being vigilant pay off

tngovNashville – With Tennesseans paying more attention to their economic habits, the Tennessee Securities Division would like to provide some tips for those making investment decisions.

It is crucial that investors and would-be investors maintain the right perspective about their money. People who make quick, poorly informed investment decisions often fall prey to fraudulent activity – especially when investing with people who are not registered with the State to sell securities or who are selling unregistered securities products.

“Tennesseans should contact the division to see if a prospective financial adviser is registered with the State as the securities agent of a broker-dealer firm,” says Securities Division Director Daphne D.
