NASHVILLE, TN (WRCB) -- Commissioner Derrick Schofield has directed the Department of Correction's Office of Investigation and Compliance to conduct a thorough investigation into performance audit findings related to probation and parole supervision of deceased offenders.

Upon conclusion of the investigation follow up information will be provided.

In a related matter, following Wednesday's subcommittee hearing, Assistant Commissioner Gary Tullock submitted his resignation, effective immediately.

"This is about accountability and our commitment to the public. We want the citizens of Tennessee to have full confidence in our ability to supervise offenders," said Commissioner Schofield.

"We will continue to work diligently to ensure we will not compromise public safety when it comes the supervision of felony offenders," he added.
