Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) Director Mark Gwyn said today he will retire after 14 years in charge, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports. Gwyn, who has spent a cumulative 30 years in law enforcement, said it's the "right time" for both himself and the organization. TBI has faced recent criticism regarding hiring practices, fiduciary concerns that sparked a state audit questioning the financial management of the agency and recent debate over a $250 DUI fee deemed unconstitutional that went into the organization's coffers. Gwyn will remain TBI director until June 1, allowing a special commission that recommends the agency's directors to search for his successor.
