“I want to say thank you to the men with Veterans Court Services for the great training. I’m happy to say that all full-time, part-time, and auxiliary deputies have been trained in Veterans Court. This is a great opportunity for us to help our veterans.”

On Saturday October 17, 2015 a Lenoir City police officer used the training to save a suicidal combat veteran his life.  We are grateful to Officer John Priest for attending two PAIR sessions and for using his training to help a veteran out of harms way.
