SCAN Needs You!
Do you have a heart for the elderly? Are you looking to give back to your community? If you are, then the Knox County Sheriff’s Office has an opportunity for you. It’s called SCAN—short for Senior Citizens Awareness Network. It’s a special program in the Sheriff’s Office that uses carefully screened volunteers to help keep an eye on Knox County’s elderly and shut-in citizens. Volunteers must be 21 or older. They are trained to provide home visitation, security surveys, crime prevention counseling, and community referrals.
If you are interested or have questions, then contact Sgt. Glenwood White at 215-5444 or email at email@example.com. A new training class will start in late September.
