Senator Faulk is now Judge Faulk

Former Tennessee State Senator Mike Faulk has been named Judge for the 3rd Judicial District. Judge Faulk was a pleasure to work with and he always saw both the big picture and the minutia in the State Senate. It is good to see such a worthy person named to serve as a Judge. Congratulations to the Judicial Nominating Committee and the Governor for such a worthy appointment.

Here they are. The presumed innocent class of the June 22nd-23rd weekend in Hamilton County. Don't drink or drug and drive. You'll get your picture taken.

Jackson Network Meeting

It was a pleasure speaking to about 100 law enforcement leaders in West Tennessee at the Network meeting. The various chiefs, and other ranking officers were a great audience learning more about McNeely, the reorganized DUI law and Ignition Interlock laws. I finally got to meet Sgt. Dan Owen, the arresting officer in State v Butler, the physical control case that arose in the Jackson Wal-Mart parking lot. I got to tell him how I teach cadets about physical control by having them act out the scenario. It was a highlight for me. Stan and Mary Flowers from MADD also spoke. They have given much  of their lives to the fight against impaired driving after an impaired driver took much of their lives away. Brenda Jones, the GHSO network coordinator does an extraordinary job putting these meetings together.
