Tennessee House of Representative Speaker Cameron Sexton pounds the gavel as lawmakers reconvened for the conclusion of the 112th General Assembly at Tennessee state Capitol in Nashville, Tenn., Tuesday, Jan. 11, 2022.
House Speaker Cameron Sexton, R-Crossville, raises the gavel in Nashville during a legislative session on Oct. 27, 2021.

Tennessee General Assembly Speaker of the House Cameron Sexton (R-Crossville) was in Jackson Friday morning with Julian Wiser having a conversation with law enforcement leaders from around rural West Tennessee to discuss mental health issues and truth in sentencing that was passed earlier this year in the state legislature.

The appearance was one in a series Sexton is having across the state in conversation with law enforcement leaders to get an idea of what needs to be done to help them do their job from their perspective.

Sexton said similar conversations happened last year with judges and district attorneys, and the truth in sentencing bill that was passed this past legislative session was a result of that.

Multiple counties were represented in the conversation that focused largely on mental health.
