MADISON COUNTY, Tenn. — The Madison County Commission on Monday approved a new civil service policy for the Madison County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff says it’s a more streamlined policy in line with the state’s and protects both the department and employees through guidelines regarding things like tenure and discipline. It was first approved by the commission in December, then sent to the state legislature and governor for their approval. A required second approval by the commission came Monday. “Because of all the changes, it was misunderstood,” Sheriff John Mehr said. “It was hard to figure out because of those additions and deletions, so this way it reads better.” The new policy takes effect immediately.
