Knox County Sheriff’s Office to host job fair

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – The Knox County Sheriff’s Office is hosting a job fair Friday.

Job hunters can attend the fair at West Town Mall from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. outside of J.C. Penney.

There will be many job positions available, including: corrections officers, LPNs, property officers and support services clerks.

Applicants should bring a birth certificate, high school diploma or GED, and driver’s license. Job seekers applying to be a LPN, should bring a copy of their medical license.

For more information, call 865-215-4446.

KCSO has approximately 200 volunteers in the Corrections Division. During the past year, volunteers contributed almost 4,000 hours of service. This service encompasses church services, bible study, FOCUS classes, Life Recovery, and AA/NA classes (to name a few).

Volunteers make up the bulk of the teaching force for the inmate population in all KCSO Corrections Facilities, and the department has great working relationships with area churches and individuals within those churches.

Each year, the KCSO works with the volunteers to put on an Angel Tree party for the families of incarcerated inmates and provide gifts for the children of those inmates. On average, the department helps approximately 300 children of inmates by providing them with gifts that they would not ordinarily receive during Christmas.

Anyone interested in volunteering is asked to contact the Programs Division
