More than 160 members of the Douglas County law enforcement community, family members, friends, and Elks attended the annual Law and Order Dinner hosted by the Tahoe Douglas Elks Lodge.

To kick off the evening, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Explorers served as the Color Guard. The dinner guests enjoyed a tri-tip dinner prepared by Lodge members and an appropriately decorated cake was served for dessert. Rep.

Coverley presented Sergeant of the Year to Ron Miller, the Lifesaving Medal to Deputy J.T Davis, and Distinguished Service Medal to Sgt. Will Lynch. Other award winners were Probation Officer Dominic Hastings-Molyneux, China Youth Camp Dorm Manger Teagan Grant, Jail Division Deputy of the Year Dustin Clifford, Investigators of the Year Scott Wharton and Steve Schultz, Admin Deputy of the year Rod Ginocchio, Reserve Deputy Joe Benigno, and non-sworn employee of the year award to Keri Scheetz.
