Nehls TABC award

“We’re big believers in recognizing law enforcement leaders who exemplify the ideals of partnership and public safety,” said Bentley Nettles, executive director of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission. “Sheriff Troy Nehls has proven to be an outstanding advocate for the TABC. He requires vendors to take educational and safety training related to the sale/service/delivery of alcohol to ensure it doesn’t fall into the hands of minors or intoxicated patrons during community events.” 

“I’m truly honored to receive this award. I appreciate the work TABC does to ensure those that sell and consume alcohol do so responsibly,” said Sheriff Troy Nehls.
