The biggest budgetary item in most county budgets is that of the Sheriffs' Office. Nearly 80% of the county detention centers in South Carolina are run by Sheriffs' Offices.

The South Carolina Sheriffs' Association plays an integral role in keeping the Sheriffs abreast of legislation that would impact the manner in which they protect and serve their communities. SCSA has also been a key player in the development of legislation that has positively benefited our State. Legislation such as the SC DUI and Nonferrous Metals law. The South Carolina Sheriffs' Association is the voice of the SC Sheriffs in the complicated legislative process.
