The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation released two studies, detailing the nature and extent of domestic violence and instances of law enforcement officers attacked while on duty.

As with all of its crime publications, the TBI cautions against using the data provided in these reports to compare one jurisdiction to another. The factors impacting crime vary from community to community and accordingly, comparisons are considered neither fair nor accurate.
Both reports are currently available for review on the TBI's website: www.tn.gov/tbi.
