KPD Officer Steve Frazier recognized for his persistence, over many weeks, in helping a disabled homeless woman find housing and support services.


Great to honor the outstanding teamwork, dedication and service of Knoxville police officers today!

KPD awarded Officer and Employee of the Month recognitions to four officers and a civilian crime victim advocate and recognized its Honor Guard with a Unit Commendation. Two additional officers were saluted with Lifesaving Awards, and two civilians were recognized as Good Samaritans who helped officers apprehend a violent, fleeing suspect.

The fine police work recognized today really illustrates the incredibly wide range of service and protection that our officers provide.

Last year, Knoxville police officers responded to more than 250,000 calls for service. On average, that’s almost 700 calls a day – or 28 calls an hour, every hour.

We appreciate the dedication, professionalism and sense of service that all of our officers bring to their jobs. Thank you for your service - and congratulations to today's award honorees.
