Knox County Sheriff's Office Launches New Website
The Knox County Sheriff's Office launched a new responsive website on 6/15/22 where residents can find the latest information regarding the operations of the Sheriff's Office as well as locate area sex offenders.
The new Website will serve as an information resource for the public and assist with community policing efforts. The responsive design allows site visitors to access the information they want and need from any device with simple, flexible navigation.
The new Website, https://www.knoxcountysheriffil.com, features press releases, pages on the departments and services of the Sheriff's Office, and a link to submit crime tips via email.
"Our goal with the website is to provide transparency between our office and the public. We want the public to understand how this office serves the community, residents, and visitors. We want our community members to have the information they need, when they need it. The responsive design allows users to quickly and conveniently access the Website information on the device of their choice: desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. In addition, the responsive Website features a Site Search, which makes finding specific information much faster and easier for the site visitor," said Sheriff Clague.
Other features of the Website include:
Alert Notifications - allows the public to sign up for alert notifications from the Sheriff's Office via email or text - including sex offender notifications, press releases, and messages from the Sheriff
E-newsletter - allows the public to sign up and receive an e-newsletter from the Sheriff's Office featuring articles and photos.
Press Releases - allows the public to view a list in date order, sorted by year, of press release and news items posted by the Sheriff's Office.
Sex Offenders - allows the public to view photos and information for sex offenders living in the county. The interactive map feature on the Website allows the public to view sex offender locations on the map, view offender photos and profile information about the offenses.
"Posting information on the Website improves the efficiency of the Sheriff's Office by reducing the number of inquiry calls handled by our office. This tool allows us to devote more resources to the safety and security of our residents. Our intent is for every County resident to visit the site and become familiar with how to locate sex offenders, how to submit a crime tip and where to find the latest news and updates from the Sheriff's Office. We believe the Website is a huge benefit to the Sheriff's Office and the residents of Knox County as well," said Sheriff Clague.
