CHATTANOOGA (AP) — A Tennessee Highway Patrol captain has resigned following a law enforcement career that spanned more than three decades.

Warren County resident Capt. Jeffrey Mosley resigned Dec. 5, the same day he was questioned about unprofessional conduct. He signed a notice stating that he was resigning “in lieu of termination.”

An investigation into Mosley’s conduct was launched after the Tennessee Highway Patrol received an anonymous complaint.

Years ago, Mosley, 56, was assigned to the Highway Patrol district that included Warren County. Before his promotion to captain, he had served as road lieutenant from 2009 to 2015 in Coffee County.

In his duties as captain, Mosley oversaw 12 counties and approximately 75 employees, including troopers, dispatchers and other office personnel. The state is divided into eight Highway Patrol districts with one captain leading each district.

Mosley had worked for the THP for more than 30 years. Prior to joining that law enforcement agency, he began his career with the state as a correctional officer with the Department of Corrections in 1983, working at the facility in Bledsoe County.
