169.625 has been TVA for as long as I can remember. TVA Police was in part "disbanded." They still function very much, just no longer in the role of patrol like traditional law enforcement.

TVA has a long history of not liking people that protect them. Currently, I'm not sure exactly how they are organized, but the last major revamp was that they laid off the majority of their 'police department', and contracted with a private security contractor for the bulk of the job. They kept a handful of officers as 'inspectors' that have an area they are responsible for. Absolute last I heard was that they were taking handguns away at most (or all) nuclear power sites from their contractor guard patrol.
