Meet Keith Sexton

I am a lifelong resident of Washington County, attending school at Towne Acres Elementary, Sulphur Springs Elementary/Middle School, and graduated from Daniel Boone High School in 1987. I earned my bachelor’s degree in criminal justice in 2014 while working full-time as a police officer.  
I am a family man, married to my wonderful wife Ashley, and blessed with three grown children, two grown stepchildren, and six grandchildren. They are my life’s greatest possessions. I am a conservative Christian with strong beliefs in God, family, and service to our fellow man. I am an honorably discharged veteran, having served in the United States Marine Corps and the Tennessee Army National Guard.  
I have spent my life as a public servant, choosing a career as a law enforcement officer serving Washington County and Johnson City for over 30 years now.  I started my law enforcement career in January of 1991, working with Washington County Sheriff’s Office for 17 years, where I was promoted through the ranks to the rank of Lieutenant/Watch Commander. The Johnson City Police Department currently employs me as a Lieutenant in charge of the training unit. I am also an FBI certified Bomb Technician, the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team commander, and the SWAT team commander. 
I have a great deal of real law enforcement leadership experience in both agencies working in the patrol divisions, criminal investigations units, special operations, drug enforcement investigations, and training. Throughout my career, no matter my rank or position, I have always believed in treating people the way that I want to be treated, respectful, polite, and professional.
