Jiyayi Suleyman (pictured) became Nashville's first Kurdish police officer in 2012. It was a source of pride for both the community and the department.
According to an investigative file obtained by News4, Suleyman was a member of the Kurdish Pride Gang, a group known for selling illegal guns and drugs.
Police said he lied on his application about who he was and who he hung out with.
Once on the inside, he used the TBI's computer program to look up fellow gang members which is against the rules.
