Top Cop Award goes to Special Agent with State Auditor's Office

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Thursday May 19, 2016 is officially recognized by the State of Mississippi as Peace Officers Memorial Day. In conjunction with that, the Mississippi Center for Police and Sheriffs hosts the annual Police Memorial and Appreciation Day in Jackson.  

Each year those officers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty are honored with a Top Cop Award. This year that honor went to Special Agent Jeff Joel who works with the State Auditor's Office.

Special Agent Joel joined the Investigation's Division of the State Auditor's office in 2012.  He has investigated over 65 cases, issued over $800,000 dollars in demands, and helped prepare over 40 counts in indictments.

"Jeff serves as a great example not only to the agents on our staff, but also to agents and officers across the state," said State Auditor Stacey Pickering. "We are honored to have him serve in our office as we work to protect Mississippi taxpayers."
