  • TVA police

    Hi, wondering if anyone has knowledge Of the Tennessee Valley Authority Police. Basically they are a Fed LE dept that secures all of the power plants, hydro electric dams etc in the Tenn Valley Area. I love this region of the country and love being outdoors in sparsely populated locations.

    Does anybody have knowledge of Pay, working conditions, duties, morale, etc?

    I have a friend who just left TVA to go to another Fed LE job. We went to the academy together. The things I know from him... TVA Police is not a great LE place to work. They are not supportive of real LE, which is why my friend left. They do not have 6C retirement and their pay scale is not similar to other Fed LE jobs. Start out making $35k/year or so. They don't support carrying your firearm off duty. The management has virtually no true LE experience and they try to lead that way. Sorry to be a bummer, but the location is about the only thing they have going for them. Good luck!

            I see some TVA police every now and then out and about...but mostly they never leave TVA property. They cruise the perimeter of Brown's Ferry, and I've seen them parked near Wilson Dam camp grounds. I imagine their jurisdiction is fairly limited and might be a tad boring. Never know though, you might like it.

            I had some friends do contract security forces there, but I think they were something totally different than TVA police. I'm pretty sure they were doing SRT and foot patrols around the facility, with no LE duties.
