The patch of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) depicts the agency’s seal. The judicial scales at the top are a reminder of TBI’s work to restore justice through investigation. The abbreviation of TBI within the central outline of Tennessee represents the agency’s statewide mandate, as well as its motto of “Truth, Bravery, Integrity.” At the bottom, the flags of Tennessee and the United States are linked to show the necessary interdependence of TBI’s work with other states and federal agencies.
