Since he became a member of the unit, he has continued to display a genuine passion for service to the Knoxville community.

Through his services the police department was able to increase crime enforcement throughout the community it serves.

Chief Owen said, “Reserve Officer Riggins is always willing to volunteer his time and service to support special community events while taking a proactive role in providing a secure environment for those who participate. The example he has demonstrated goes far beyond the parameters set by the program and raised the bar in defining community service.”
