The Office of Sheriff is one of antiquity and is the oldest law enforcement office known within the common law system and has always been accorded great dignity and trust. The Sheriffs of California are elected and are constitutional officers in the Constitution of the State of California. In order to improve and provide effective service and protection to all citizens of California, the Sheriffs have joined together by forming this Association. This joining together of the Sheriffs will allow the Sheriffs to assist each other in fulfilling their duties and obligations to the people of this state as chief law enforcement officers of their respective counties.

Our Mission

To support the role of sheriff as the chief law enforcement officer in each California County and to speak as a collective voice on matters of public safety.
