Captain Knight began his career with the Post Falls Police Department in 1994. After spending time in the United States Marine Corps, he decided to come home and fulfill a lifetime dream of becoming a police officer.

Since that time, he has worked as a Patrol Officer, Field Training Officer, Detective, Patrol Sergeant, Administrative Sergeant, SWAT operator, Team Leader and SWAT Team Commander. He was promoted to Lieutenant in 2007 and Captain in 2010 and currently oversees the Patrol Division.
