Former Deputy Jailer Honored

It started out as just an ordinary day at work for Conrad Lanham, a deputy jailer at the Shelby County Detention Center. Then everything changed in a heartbeat when an inmate grabbed a female employee and put a sharp object to her throat. What Lanham did next earned him the title of Kentucky Deputy Jailer of the Year for 2010, an award given each year to a deputy who has displayed remarkable courage and bravery.
