February 2012 Detective of the Month
Detective Bill McKee has been named the Knox County Sheriff’s Office February 2012 Detective of the Month.
On February 15, patrol officers apprehended two suspects attempting to flee a residential burglary. The suspects were transported to the detective division for questioning. Detective McKee was assigned as the primary investigator. Both suspects were uncooperative during the interview phase. Detective McKee searched multiple databases, gathering information and evidence. Detective McKee went to several pawnshops and photographed items that had been pawned by the suspects. The photographs assisted victims in positively identifying their stolen property.
Detective McKee’s willingness to investigate and solve cases without the cooperation of suspects enabled him to identify and charge the suspects with an additional ten residential burglaries and recover approximately $11,500.00 in stolen property.
Officer McKee has been with Knox County Sheriff’s Office since November 1986.
