Transportation Officer Honored for Contributions to the Department

Posted: 07/10/2013
Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero and Police Chief David Rausch named Transportation Officer Earnest Sealy the January Civilian Employee of the Month for the Knoxville Police Department.

Sealy has been with KPD since August 2005.

Chief Rausch said Transportation Officer Sealy consistently goes above and beyond his expected duties by assisting with administrative issues for the transportation unit.

Most of these activities are completed on his personal time and include: Development of the work schedule and rotation schedule for the six transportation officers Development of the Field Training Program for newly hired transportation officers Creating a procedure list for patrol officers who fill in as transportation officers to follow which makes their service more effective and efficient Researched handheld metal detectors to include reviews, dealers, prices, and product information Researched procedures and equipment to help eliminate the possibility of prisoners moving their cuffed hands from the back to the front

Chief Rausch said, "Transportation Officer Sealy has done a remarkable and noteworthy job for the department for many years. We are appreciative of his self-initiated administrative contributions along with his daily dependable service."
