The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office 5th Annual LifeCycle Conference was held on July 24, 2018 at St. James Missionary Baptist Church. Sheriff Daron Hall was the morning speaker and Mayor David Briley was the afternoon keynote speaker! The mission of the LifeCycle Conference is to promote community collaboration that develops awareness and solution-based programs in hopes of breaking the cycle of addiction, mental illness, joblessness, and homelessness. Immediately following the conference Sheriff Hall, DA Glenn Funk and Kyle Mothershead (filling in for Judge Shelia Calloway) asked criminal justice questions of the State Senate District 19 and House Representative candidate. Moderated by Pastor Sonny Dixon.
The DCSO wins again! Metro Police and the Nashville Fire Department put up a good fight, but the Sheriff’s Office won again in the end. The final Battle of the Badges tally:
- Sheriff 377
- Fire 275
- Police 247
