FRANKLIN -- Up to five Nissan North America information security employees
could also do double duty as reserve sheriff’s deputies, assisting
investigators on forensics cases as part of a first-ever arrangement
between the automaker and the Williamson County Sheriff’s Department.
Nissan information security employees would collect, examine and preserve
electronic evidence from computers, cellphones, tablets and other devices
needed for department investigations. If need be, according to the
agreement, they might also give expert testimony in court cases and
accompany sheriff’s department officers to serve warrants involving
With Nissan offering to pay the costs of the program — even agreeing to
allow its forensics employees to work up to 20 hours a month on county
investigations, though the final amount of time is dependent on Nissan —
Williamson County gains a forensics investigation team without having to
spend its money to get one.
The deal, finalized earlier this month by county officials, deepens the
relationship between Franklin-based Nissan and Williamson County by
extending the company’s resources into helping county law enforcement
officers complete investigations.
