The Communications Unit handles all agency related press releases as well as all KCSO Social Media sites. The Unit also works with local, state and national media to provide timely and accurate information as pertaining to The Knox County Sheriff’s Office. In addition, we strive to create awareness in the community about the different units within KCSO and provide coverage of a wide variety of Community Outreach programs offered by The Knox County Sheriff’s Office. The Communications Unit also organizes Officer Appreciation & Awards ceremonies as well as The Citizens Academy that Sheriff Spangler brought back after taking office.
“Open and honest public relation and communication is one of our most highly regarded aspects and essential need for law enforcement and the community. Our team exceeds those needs, going above and beyond what is expected.”
Tom Spangler, Sheriff
