President's Message

There's no profession quite like law enforcement where the only thing predictable is the unpredictability. At any given moment, those who serve communities across our state can - and do - suddenly experience tragedy and chaos. Time and time again though, without fail, they rise to the challenging situations presented to them and help restore calmness and order.

The honorable demonstration of law enforcement from agencies large and small throughout this state makes me proud to be part of the Kansas Sheriffs' Association. Because of our members and supporters, this organization does incredible work in advocating for legislation focused on keeping law enforcement and fellow Kansans safe, supporting advanced educational opportunities by awarding scholarships to students, and also providing training to Sheriff's Offices.

As Kansas Sheriffs, we are truly blessed to serve a citizenry who understands the importance of the Office of Sheriff and it's because of the special connection between citizens and their Sheriff, our organization enjoys the great amount of success it does.

Whether you are a Kansas Sheriff, a fellow law enforcement professional, a member of our organization or just visiting our website to learn more about us, we thank you and encourage you to reach out if we may be of assistance.

Sheriff, Cherokee County
