KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Former Knoxville mayor Randy Tyree has joined the Knox County Sheriff's Office as assistant coordinator for the Senior Citizens Awareness Network (SCAN) and Project Live Saver.

KCSO said in a news release that Tyree will be helping to recruit and retain volunteers in those two programs.

Sheriff Jimmy "J.J." Jones said Tyree's leadership in the community and service in non-profit organizations over the years make him a perfect fit.

Tyree has served on the board of the Senior Citizen Home Assistance Service, Inc., the Clinics of Hope, which provides medical care for the uninsured and working poor, the East Tennessee Veterans Memorial Association, and has been commended for his leadership in establishing the Veterans Cemetery and the East Tennessee Veterans Nursing Home in Knox County.

The SCAN program provides special training to volunteers to go out in the community to help the elderly, including providing personal well-being checks, home security surveys and crime prevention outreach.

Project Life Saver provides electronic bracelets to Alzheimer's patients or others who may have a tendency to wander and get lost. Electronic equipment can then be used to find their locations.
