Absconder Apprehended Thanks To Officers Diligence

Absconder Apprehended Thanks To Officers Diligence
TDOC/Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday January 17, 2018

A sex offender attempting to flee the state was apprehended in Cookeville, TN thanks to the diligence of Probation Parole Officers with the Tennessee Department of Correction?s Program Specialized Unit (PSU) and the department?s strong partnerships with local law enforcement. According to the Tennessee Department of Corrections, the offender had made plans to flee Hawkins County, Tennessee for Salt Lake City, Utah. Last week, the Central Communications Center notified Probation Parole Officer (PPO) Joshua Nease that offender William McAllister was being tracked via GPS in Washington County, which violated the standards of supervision for McAllister since he is not permitted to leave Hawkins County without permission from his supervising officer. PPO Nease immediately contacted PSU officers in Washington County to investigate. The officers were able to pinpoint the location of McAllister?s GPS unit which he had removed. They canvassed the area and discovered that McAllister had boarded a Greyhound Bus which notably had stops in Crossville, Cookeville and Nashville. Officers contacted law enforcement in all three cities and McAllister was apprehended in Cookeville by the Police Department and Cookeville PSU Manager Catina Bohannon. (Photo courtesy TDOC)
