Three Knox County Sheriff's Office Employees Recognized for Service June 30, 2017

Sheriff Donna Dennison recognized three Knox County Deputies at their last patrol meeting held on June 30, 2017. 

Deputy Nathaniel Jack was given a life saving award for his efforts on May 18th. While on his way home, Deputy Jack came across an accident involving a truck and a motorcycle. The operator of the motorcycle struck the back end of the truck and was thrown from his bike, receiving a severe laceration to his leg. Deputy Jack used his training and experience from the military and law enforcement to apply a tourniquet. Medical professionals from EMS and the hospital stated that Deputy Jack’s actions very likely saved the man’s life.

Deputy John Hansen has decided to retire after 25 years in law enforcement. Along with agencies in other states, he served the Knox County Sheriff’s Office from 1992-1996 and again from 2010 to current. Sheriff Dennison thanked him for his service. Deputy Hansen will stay on in a part-time capacity. 

Lieutenant Reginald Walker was recognized for his anniversary date of June 6th, 2017 being his 30th year with the Knox County Sheriff’s Office.  Lt. Walker has served in almost every capacity with the Sheriff’s Office in his 30 years. He has been a dispatcher, patrol deputy, patrol supervisor, patrol administrator, detective and currently serves as the Detective Supervisor. Lt. Walker is also the agency’s polygraph examiner. His institutional knowledge is invaluable. He has been a great mentor and friend to everyone in the Sheriff’s Office, past and present. We do expect him to stay around to receive recognition for a 50th year of service as well…..he wasn’t so sure of that.
