SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. (WJHL) – The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office hosted a blood drive in honor of officers that gave their lives in the line of duty.
The drive honored several local officers in partnership with Marsh Regional Blood Center:
- Deputy Bowlin
- Deputy Mitchell
- Sergeant Hinkle
- Sergeant Stewart
“We had the passing of Sgt. Hinkle, which brought a lot of attention to the blood drives,” said Captain Jeremiah Lane. “What this is is another way we can give back to the community. We have a lot of officers that donate blood, and a lot of people from the community come donate blood and want to help each other out.”
The event ran from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday at the office’s headquarters at 140 Blountville Bypass.
While walk-in donations were accepted, Marsh encouraged those who wanted to donate to register online.
