New Sheriff Orientation and Training

2018 Sheriffs' School

Registration for the 2018 Sheriff School is officially open! In recent years, this course was three initial days followed by additional days over the first few months in office. That has now changed. The 2018 Sheriff School will last 5 straight days and there will be no dedicated follow meetings. Of course, our Association will be there for newly elect Sheriffs as they begin their terms in Office.

Sheriff School will also be open to command staff members of new Sheriffs. While the Sheriff should have a firm grip on the inner-workings of his Office, it is vital for the Sheriff to surround himself with people that understand the expectations and responsibilities of his Office as well. Current Sheriffs and members of their command staffs are welcome to attend any or all portions of Sheriff School as well.

There is no cost to attend this training, but registration is STRONGLY encouraged (primarily for planning and meal functions). Registration for command staff members of current Sheriffs will be contingent upon availability in the class. Interested parties should register for the class now. If slots are available in the class, you will be notified by November 26, 2018.

​Deadline for Registration is November 23 , 2018.
