February 2017 Officer of the Month
The Knox County Sheriff’s Office congratulates February’s Officer of the Month, Nathan Stachey.
On February 1st, Officer Stachey received a call for a welfare check. The complainant’s neighbor, who lives alone, had not been seen for three days and did not answer the door or phone. Officer Stachey and his beat partner checked the residence and found the storm door shut and locked, but the main door open. He forced entry into the house and found the woman lying face-down on the floor, barely breathing. Rural Metro responded and transported her to the hospital. They said that if she had not been found when she was, that she could have died.
Officer Stachey has been with the KCSO since April 2010.
