(a)  The director may employ such clerical and stenographic personnel as may be needed for the efficient operation of the bureau. Salaries of the personnel of the bureau shall be fixed by the director and paid from the funds appropriated to the bureau by the general assembly. Nothing contained in this section shall affect in any way the retirement benefits and longevity pay as are now provided for the personnel for the Tennessee bureau of criminal identification. All funds, supplies and equipment now allocated for the use and benefit of the Tennessee bureau of criminal identification are transferred to the separate department created by this chapter for the use and benefit of the bureau.

(b)  When a member of the bureau is injured in the line of duty and that injury prevents the member from performing the member's regular duties, whether the disability is temporary or permanent, it is lawful for the director, in the director's sound discretion and with the approval of the governor and the attorney general and reporter, to retain the disabled member of the bureau upon the regular payroll of the bureau until the member's claim for compensation for the disability is determined by the state board of claims. The state board of claims shall act within thirty (30) days of receipt of a disability rating based upon competent medical advice.
