Groundbreaking
TBI Hosts Groundbreaking for New Jackson Laboratory & Regional Headquarters

Joined by Governor Bill Haslam and a variety of other state and local leaders, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation broke ground today on a new laboratory and regional headquarters in Madison County.

The Special Agent De’Greaun ReShun Frazier TBI Crime Laboratory and Regional Headquarters will be built on a plot of land on Smith Lane, just south of the Jackson Regional Airport. When it opens in late 2020, the approximately 50,000-square-foot, approximately $20 million facility will replace the Memphis Crime Lab, allowing TBI to provide expanded and more efficient services to agencies across the 21 counties the TBI serves in West Tennessee.

TBI’s new facility will include designated space for eight forensic units, including Forensic Biology, Firearms, and Toxicology, along with office space for Special Agents, and designated meeting rooms for future training events.

“We’ve worked with an experienced architectural designer to make sure our new laboratory is as state-of-the-art as possible,” said Donna Nelson, Crime Lab Regional Supervisor. “Having a larger, more efficient workspace will improve workflow, helping our Forensic Scientists provide even better services for our law enforcement partners across West Tennessee.”

The facility will be named to honor TBI Agent De’Greaun Frazier, who died in the line of duty during an undercover TBI drug operation in Jackson in August 2016. Frazier, 35, was a 15-year law enforcement veteran and is survived by his wife, Shannon, and their two children, Kamaryn and Kendrix.

“It’s a fitting tribute to our fallen Agent, who had a lasting impact on the Jackson community,” said TBI Director David Rausch. “We’re thankful to our partners at the State of Tennessee for providing the resources to make this project a reality. Our goal, as an agency, is always to improve, and that includes having the right resources – in the right places – to provide the services citizens expect from the TBI.”

Jefferson County Creates Sustainable Change Across Their Organization

In order to change the way that the world sees aging, it is important to not just implement The Green House model, but also to sustain it.  Through experience and research, we have found that this occurs most successfully when culture change exists throughout the organization, not just within The Green House homes.

Jefferson County Nursing home in Tennessee opened their three Green House homes in 2010, and have experienced successful outcomes and stories of transformation.  As they look to the future, they have decided to partner again with The Green House Project on a process called, The Legacy Blueprint.  This program is offered to Green House organizations when they also have a legacy home to promote alignment of the core values and essential practices of The Green House model.  All elders, regardless of where they live, deserve a small, flexible and warm environment with opportunities for choice, and a sense of purpose.

Roger Mynatt, Executive Director of Jefferson County Nursing Home, shares, “We chose work with The Green House Project on the Legacy Blueprint because it will create the perfect bridge between the Legacy Building and our Green House homes.  We are taking the best of our mission and complimenting it with the Green House Core Values to create staff empowerment and person-directed care.”
