At the annual awards banquet for NAMI (National Alliance on Mental illness) held in Nashville September 27, Sheriff Mehr was presented the 2018 Cochran Criminal Justice Award. Kim Parker, Director of Inpatient & Crisis Services for Pathways Behavioral Health Service, who nominated him, is seen pictured with the Sheriff at the ceremony.
“In thanks for your support of NAMI and your tireless dedication to justice for people with mental illness”. The Sheriff humbly accepted both while expressing thanks, for the men and women who serve the Madison County Sheriff’s office.
