The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has a new addition to the state’s Top Ten Most Wanted list, Crystal Lynn Bradshaw of Lexington, Kentucky. Crystal Bradshaw is wanted by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office for Felony Aggravated Kidnapping and Felony Trafficking for Commercial Sex Acts. Bradshaw was last seen in a white 2008 Ford Fusion, possibly with Tennessee temporary tags. The charges stem from the kidnapping of a 15-year-old Kentucky female who was recovered in Montgomery County, Tennessee. Bradshaw, 41, is a Caucasian female with brown hair and blue eyes. She’s 5 feet 9 and weighs approximately 140 pounds. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Crystal Lynn Bradshaw is urged to call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND (1-800-824-3463). There is a $1,000 reward for information leading to her arrest. (Photo Courtesy tn.gov/TBI)
As part of our ongoing effort to recruit and retain the very best employees, the Tennessee Department of Correction is proud to launch new signing bonus and employee referral programs. Beginning Monday, August 17, 2015, all new correctional officers and nurses joining the agency will receive a $600 signing bonus. In addition, the Department is simultaneously launching a referral program for current employees. TDOC employees will receive a $100 incentive for each new correctional officer or nurse they refer to the Department. “Our new recruits frequently tell us that they heard about the great opportunities at TDOC from one of our current employees. The signing bonus and referral programs help us compete with other industries for the best and the brightest applicants and rewards the staff that helps us recruit them,” says Commissioner Derrick Schofield. The Tennessee Department of Correction is the state’s largest law enforcement agency, with a non-negotiable mission of operating safe and secure prisons and providing effective community supervision in order to enhance public safety.
