Congratulations to COTA class 145! Friday evening these graduates received their certificates along with their badges to begin their careers at The Knox County Sheriff’s Office.

COTA Class 145 was the first class in the history of our agency to ever receive a “badge” at graduation. This is something that Sheriff Spangler is very proud to have started for our Corrections Officers.

We are honored to have them as part of our Family and look forward to each of them excelling in their careers.

Officers with The Knox County Sheriff’s Office Special Services Unit were the proud recipients of Smart Banks stuffed animal drive. 

These adorable stuffed animals will be utilized by our Special Services Unit as they visit area school children, our Patrol Units as well as our Family Crimes Unit as they answer calls where children could benefit from the comfort of a stuffed animal.

Sheriff Spangler as well as all of our Officers at KCSO appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity.
