Thank you for actively engaging the Knox County Sheriff's Department to enhance the quality of life for all who live, work and visit Knox County.

On behalf of the Sheriff of Knox County and the men and woman of the Knox County Sheriff's Department I would like to welcome you to our website.

In visiting our website you will find it to be both interactive and easy to navigate. It contains a wealth of resources and information. It is a virtual portal allowing the Knox County Sheriff's Department to provide extensive information to the public. It also serves as a platform to promote collaboration and continued communication with our federal, state, and regional law enforcement partners, as well as the community we serve.

Our website enhances community participation, which is essential to promote a philosophy of Prevention, Intervention and Enforcement as we work together to increase information sharing, combat crime and reduce the fear of crime.
