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.
