Welcome to the Florida Sheriffs Association (FSA) official website. I am pleased to serve as the President of the Association during the next year. You will find information about the Office of Sheriff and the sheriffs currently serving Florida’s 67 counties. In the United States of America, sheriffs have long played a significant role in preserving peace and justice as we protect and serve the people.
The FSA has been in existence since 1893 and is one of the oldest professional law enforcement associations in the nation. Our mission as an Association is to foster the effectiveness of the sheriffs through leadership, innovation, legislative initiatives, education and training, while providing a unified voice for the protection of Florida’s citizens and visitors. We are law enforcement leaders responsible for meeting the needs of 21st Century America. Our core principle includes having strong relationships with all communities throughout Florida by embracing community policing as a strategy.
The FSA recognizes and values the partnerships we have with our Honorary Members as well as with our business and law enforcement members. Thank you for your continued membership and support. If you are not an honorary member, please consider joining by completing the membership application found on our website.
Again, welcome to our website and enjoy the journey!
Sheriff Jerry L. Demings
President Florida Sheriff’s Association
