In Memory

Sgt Laycock with "Back to school" loading bar on white background and name

Hired  as a KCSO officer in 1987, Sergeant Laycock was a legendary officer, supervisor, and friend to all who met him.  Not only was Sergeant Laycock an impeccable asset to the Sheriff’s Office and schools, but he was also a great pillar in the community.

Thank you, Sergeant, for your service and dedication.

The School Patrol Unit is responsible for covering 41 schools within Knox County. Officers are protecting and monitoring their assigned school each day.
