City to Provide Response to Allegations of Misconduct by KPD Officers

Posted: 07/18/2019
During a City press conference at 3 p.m. today (July 18, 2019) in Room 549 of the City County Building, the City will provide a response to allegations of misconduct by Knoxville Police Department officers.

The Knoxville Police Department’s Internal Affairs Unit is investigating allegations of misconduct by a small number of officers, including a formal complaint that a sergeant made inappropriate comments and that his actions were not properly addressed by his superiors.

Mayor Rogero and Chief Thomas, while unable to comment on the specific allegations pending the completion of the Internal Affairs Unit review, will announce immediate steps being taken.
