Local Trooper To Head Area District

THP 2Tennessee Highway Patrol Colonel Tracy Trott has announced Jeff Mosley of McMinnville as the new captain of the agency’s Chattanooga District, effective immediately. Mosley replaced Captain Jessie Brooks, who last month was appointed to lead the THP Knoxville District.
Prior to his promotion, Mosley had worked as a road lieutenant in Coffee County since 2009. During that time, he assisted with the organization and allocation of manpower for the Bonnaroo festival, which brings over 80,000 motorists to the area annually.
Mosley became a state trooper in 1987. His first assignment was as a road trooper in Giles County until 1992. He also worked in White and Van Buren Counties in the THP’s Cookeville District until he earned his first promotion to sergeant in Warren County in 1998.
