Giving sheriffs a louder political voice in the state capitol.

“No official other than the elected sheriff has a greater responsibility for safety of the local community. They have worked together as a group for over 100 years and will continue to do so in the future,” said Kevin Merritt, executive director of the MSA. “They don’t want to let being ‘good’ get in the way of being ‘great’ public servants.”
