Sheriff Rodney Meyer attended the Sheriffs' Association of Texas 139th Annual Training Conference in Grapevine recently. During the conference, Sheriff Meyer was presented the Texas Peacemaker Award for all his hard work and dedication as a county sheriff. The Sheriffs' Association of Texas describes the Texas Peacemaker Award as an honor to "a law enforcement professional that has exemplified, over their lifetime of public service, an extraordinary dedication to the public good and community which they have served and whose approach to law enforcement has been not only to maintain order-but bring justice". The recipient is someone that brings out the best in people, recognizes the dignity of others and serves as a role model and mentor to younger generations of law enforcement officers. Sheriff Meyer has exhibited all of these qualities along with going beyond being a lawman along with uniting and protecting the citizens of Lee County. The Texas Peacemaker Award was established in honor of the late Tieman H. Dippel, former Sheriff of Washington County, and is funded by Brenham National Bank. Below, Sheriff Meyer is pictured receiving the engraved plaque for the award from SAT Executive Director Steve Westbrook. Two $500 scholarships will be given by the Sheriffs' Association of Texas in Sheriff Meyer's name. Congratulations to Sheriff Meyer!!
