Tullahoma’s first female investigator started her new job this week. Rena Pawlowski received her gold investigator badge from Tullahoma Police Chief Paul Blackwell. The 20-year police veteran took the day as any other. She stated that it is just another day on the job for her. She noted that just another dimension of her work with the department. The difference from serving as a patrol officer, a job that she has performed in Tullahoma for ten years, is that now she will get “to see cases from the beginning to them being resolved in court.” She added, “This as opposed to the fact that patrolmen only get to see the initial report taken and then turned over to an investigator”. Tullahoma Police Chief Paul Blackwell stated that Pawlowski brings another dimension to the investigator side of the department.
