Not news to them. They were told that TVA was getting out of the law enforcement business over two years ago.

"That’s more than 21/2 hours of my life that I can’t get back,”

Officers: Remarks threatening
Logan said Friday’s meeting was “a waste of time, other than being threatened,”

Interesting unfunded mandate. "Patrol us or we'll tell Papa Holder to cut your money."

If I were a chief in that area and threatened, I'd be irritated as well. And if not in my jurisdiction, the TVA would be pounding sand for call responses or assistance.

It's way cheaper to have security guards than cops. Paid less, do less, know less, require less training, require less gear, have no or low benefits, different or no retirement, etc. You get almost nothing with security besides someone to watch and pick up a phone, but comparitively, you pay almost nothing. And that's seductive to the bean counters. As previously noted, this has been years in the works. Not a surprise to anyone at TVA.

Sounds like some serious BS to me, shoving it off on local LE, who are basically being told "deal with it".
