The state’s 31 District Attorneys have recognized state Rep. Paul Sherrell (R–Sparta) with the Public Safety Advocate Award.
The Public Safety Advocate Award is given to a legislator who recognizes the necessity of protecting our citizens and takes action to advance public safety.
“Representative Sherrell is keenly aware of the public safety issues faced by Tennesseans on a daily basis. He has taken action, by his support of legislation initiated by the District Attorneys Conference, to provide stronger protection to elder and vulnerable citizens and to child victims of sexual abuse, as well as to punish drug dealers more severely,” said Jerry Estes, Executive Director of the Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference. “He is a committed leader and is more than deserving of this award.”
“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized by Tennessee’s District Attorneys for our work improving the safety of our citizens,” said Representative Sherrell. “I am grateful for their partnership, and I know we have made our community and all of Tennessee safer for current and future generations. I look forward to continuing our efforts in the years ahead.”
Sherrell serves District 43, which includes White, Grundy and part of Warren counties, in the Tennessee House of Representatives.
