The Mt. Juliet Police Department suffered a heartbreaking loss after Officer Brittany Frazier was found deceased at her Mt. Juliet residence Saturday morning. At the department’s request, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation responded to conduct an investigation into the matter.
Preliminary information indicates that foul play does not appear to be involved. Brittany was 33 years old and had been with MJPD for just under a year, but she had previously served in law enforcement for many years prior to joining the department.
“Brittany was a caring and outgoing woman, who was dedicated to serving the Mt. Juliet community, and her presence always brightened any room she walked into. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, and we will ensure they receive whatever support is needed,” stated Police Chief James Hambrick. “While our department family is hurting at the loss of Brittany, we are extremely grateful for the support we have received from our community, faith leaders, law enforcement partners, and local businesses. She was well-loved by all of us.”
The department will not be answering any questions or providing additional information as they focus their efforts to support Brittany’s family and the men and women of the Mt. Juliet Police Department.
