by Sheriff Grady Judd, President

The Major County Sheriffs of America is one of the most prestigious law enforcement and corrections organizations in the nation serving over 100 million citizens.  As Sheriffs, we stand on the shoulders of many giants who came before us – those who had the courage to take a stand for what was right for the communities they served.  They have shown us that right is right - and wrong is never right.  

It is our job, as Sheriffs, to lead the way for a safer America and to make the lives of our citizens safe and more comfortable.   We must set the tone so this nation can continue to prosper, creating an atmosphere where businesses are welcome –residents are welcome – tourists are welcome – and where crime is not.

I am honored and humbled to serve the Major County Sheriffs of America as their Association President and I commend all the nation’s Sheriffs for their willingness to work as a cohesive group for the betterment of our communities.  We all have a common goal: to protect and serve our communities and our employees with integrity and vigilance.  When we act together toward a common goal – with a sense of urgency – there is nothing we cannot accomplish for the people of the United States of America.
