July 2013 Corrections Officer of the Month
The Knox County Sheriff’s Office congratulates July’s Correction Officer of the Month, Officer Roderick Staples.
On July 22nd, Officer Staples was informed that a group of inmates had orchestrated a scheme to smuggle drugs into the Knox County Detention Facility. After gaining more information regarding the involvement of the inmates in this plan, Officer Staples was able to find out when and how the contraband would enter the facility and to whom it was to be delivered. Due to Officer Staples’ diligent efforts, narcotics were stopped from being distributed in the facility and felony charges were filed on active participants in the scheme.
Officer Staples has been with the KCSO since September 2007.
