MADISON COUNTY, Tenn. — The Madison County Sheriff’s Office was given a brand-new SUV Tuesday from the Governor’s Highway Safety Office. Law Enforcement Liaison Officer Brenda Jones presented the keys to the 2015 Ford Explorer to Sheriff John Mehr. The award was from the eleventh annual Law Enforcement Challenge, a competition designed to recognize and reward the best overall traffic safety programs across the state, according to a release from the sheriff’s office. Sgt. Joseph Gill, traffic director for the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, was in competition with nine other agencies. “We are so very proud of the program and excited we won the vehicle, and we have put it in service,” Sheriff Mehr states in the release.
