Commissioner Mike Hammond to Dr. Jim McIntyre: “As it pertains to the relationship with the head of security with the awarding of the PCSD contract and a potential conflict of interest…What are we doing in the future to prevent this?”

“The relationship between Mr. Griffin and PCSD is under investigation. We’ve engaged attorney Ruth Ellis to look at that on our behalf… In terms of looking at that issue, I actually believe that some of the work the Knox County audit department is doing is going to be informative and helpful…”: Dr. McIntyre
