Boggess started with the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office in 1982 due to the World’s Fair being held in Knoxville. At that time the sheriff’s office jail was located on Second Street, but transitioned to a new jail on Johnson Boulevard in 1988, at which time he was hired full time.
Throughout his career Boggess has worked in the Patrol and Criminal Investigations divisions. During his time in the Patrol Division, he received numerous promotions such as sergeant, lieutenant and senior lieutenant.
During Boggess’ six-year tenure as the Patrol Division senior lieutenant, he was in charge of the daily patrol operations and created the Marine and Mounted Patrol Units.
In 2004 when the BCSO jail converted to the Justice Center on Blythe Avenue, he was transferred to oversee Jail Safety and Security, which encompassed the multimillion dollar facility’s cameras, door controls, jail maintenance, two-way radio and mobile data systems, and Fleet Services.
In 1976, he began his career at Bradley County Emergency Medical Services as an emergency medical technician, and served as a volunteer for 21 years with Bradley County Fire-Rescue. Boggess served as chief of Rescue for the last 12 years of his tenure.
Watson stated, “Boggess’ dedication to the agency and his competency that has been proven throughout his career at the sheriff’s office has qualified him for this promotion. His leadership qualities and high level of knowledge will ensure our facility’s daily operations are consistently effective.”
