MPD – New Training Officer Todd King

Morristown Police Department’s Sergeant Todd King will be the MPD’s new Training Officer starting September 16, 2014.

Sergeant King has been with the department since 1995. Sergeant King was a patrol officer for nine years until he was promoted to detective.  King was moved to the Narcotics/Vice Division in 2005, where he has spent the last nine years working primarily vice cases.  In that division he was promoted to Corporal then Sergeant.

In addition to becoming the Training Officer, Sergeant King recently became the Special Response Team’s Commander. He has taken that role after Major Chris Wisecarver stepped down from the position earlier this month, after 20 years.  Sergeant King has been a member of SRT for more than 15 years.

Sergeant King is certified by the Tennessee Peace Officers Standards and Training as an instructor in several areas including firearms and monadnock expandable baton. He is one of five MPD current personnel to attend the National Forensics Academy.
