May 22, 2014

Although the Knox Sheriff’s Department are seeking help with their long-term investigations, officials with the department say emergency 911 calls will be answered.


Chief Deputy Derek Eubanks said emergency calls will still be answered.  “We will have to do it. It is the county’s responsibility,” he said.

Eubanks said the department will seek KSP help in cases that will involve a long-term investigation.

He said rumors that no deputies will be hired when a new sheriff comes in office has prompted some deputies to consider looking for another job.

“I’ve got three deputies job hunting,” he said.  The content you are trying to view is available only to subscribers. Please log-in or go to Register to subscribe today!
