Dear Citizens of
Over the years our
county has grown rapidly; the expansion of the population
has brought about both good and bad changes. Substance abuse
is one of the most popular and important problems that we
are faced with today. The drug abuse problem can be linked
to burglaries, thefts, domestics, murder and many other
criminal activities. As your Sheriff I promise to fight drug
and alcohol abuse throughout our Knox County.
Now more than ever
we are now making more drug and alcohol-related arrest;
however we feel like the public, especially the children
should be more educated on the dangers associated with
substance abuse. Drug awareness is not possible with out the
continuous support of the community. Substance abuse not
only effects the user it also effects there family friends
and everyone in the community.
I ask that you
please take the time to report any drug activity in your
community. You may call the office at 606-546-3181 or email
callers will remain anonymous.
I think you for
your support and appreciate your help in fighting the war on
drugs in Knox County.
