-Knox County Sheriff’s Office Chaplain Graduation-
Sheriff Tom Spangler is pleased to welcome the 13th class of Chaplain Graduates into the Knox County Sheriff’s Office family.
On November 9, 2021, a graduation ceremony was held for class number 13 for Knox County Sheriff’s Office Chaplains. The class also included the first-ever partnership with the Boys & Girls Club Chaplains.
“As Sheriff of Knox County, it is an honor to partner with the Boys & Girls Club in seeing the first-ever chaplains graduate from KCSO’s Chaplain’s Academy. Having the chaplains in their organization will undoubtedly strengthen their programs for the children and families they serve.
Words are always inadequate to describe what our chaplains mean to the Knox County Sheriff’s Office and the citizens of Knox County. They are often the calm to a chaotic situation or incident. They provide comfort to a family or individual who has just experienced the worst day of their life. It is knowing they are a phone call away that provides immeasurable comfort to our men and women. We are truly blessed by the best chaplains around. I am honored to serve alongside them. Congratulations class 13, well done!
