Representative Alex Monsour---2016 Legislator of the Year for the

Mississippi Houseof Representatives:



Representative Alex Monsour of Vicksburg, Mississippi, was selected as the Mississippi Law Enforcement Officer’s (MLEOA) Legislator of the year for the Mississippi House of Representatives. This award is presented on behalf of the members of the Mississippi Law Enforcement Officers Association as a way of expressing their gratitude for Representative Monsour’s tireless efforts in supporting public safety initiatives in the Mississippi State Legislature. The award was recently presented to him at the MLEOA’s Annual Conference in D’Iberville, Mississippi where officers from across the state received additional Motorcycle and K-9 training.   

Representative Monsour has been a key member of the House Judiciary B Committee for several years. This committee deals directly with criminal justice and law enforcement issues that come before the Mississippi House of Representatives. Representative Monsour always listens to the concerns of law enforcement and supports their position on important issues regarding public safety. This past session of the Mississippi legislature he supported broadening the death benefit coverage for the families of law enforcement officers and firefighters killed in the line of duty.

For these reasons Representative Alex Monsour was selected as the recipient of the MLEOA’s 2016 Legislator of the year.  


Senator Sean Tindell---2016 Legislator of the Year for the Mississippi Senate:


Senator Sean Tindell of Gulfport, Mississippi, was selected as the Mississippi Law Enforcement Officer’s (MLEOA) Legislator of the year for the Mississippi State Senate. This award is presented on behalf of the members of the Mississippi Law Enforcement Officers Association as a way of expressing their gratitude for Senator Tindell’s tireless efforts in supporting public safety initiatives in the Mississippi State Legislature.  The award was recently presented to him at the MLEOA’s Annual Conference in D’Iberville, Mississippi where officers from across the state received additional Motorcycle and K-9 training.

Senator Tindell is a former Assistant District Attorney for Harrison, Hancock and Stone Counties. He understands the challenges law enforcement officers and their families face on the job each and every day. As Chairman of the Senate Judiciary A Committee, Senator Tindell deals directly with criminal justice and law enforcement issues that come before the Mississippi State Senate. While he is fair and balanced in his approach to all legislation, he is always willing to listen to the concerns of law enforcement. During the 2016 session, he stood up for the safety of both law enforcement officers and citizens by protecting our courthouses in Mississippi.

For these reasons Senator Sean Tindell was selected as the recipient of the MLEOA’s 2016 Legislator of the year.
