Jon Halsey comments on duties of the sheriff
By Jon Halsey, Personal commentary
Although the word "sheriff" does not appear in the Constitution, the Sheriff is the highest Constitutionally elected Law Enforcement official in the land.
The Sheriff takes an oath to uphold the State Constitution and therefore he/she is the only safeguard between the citizens and unwarranted intrusion by the Federal Government. In modern times this duty has been eroded and nearly forgotten. Currently seven States are working to insure that the Constitutional concept of State Sovereignty is upheld by requiring all Federal Officials co-ordinate any arrests within the State with the local Sheriff of the jurisdiction involved.
