The chart above illustrates how each of these items are allocated in FSA's annual budget.
Membership dues paid by the sheriffs of Florida are a special source of funding for FSA. Sheriffs' participation in the FSA is completely voluntary.
These dues, accordinf to FSA bylaws, are set by a two-thirds vote of a quorum of the sheriffs present in a general meeting and are paid annually by individual Sheriffs' Offices.
Benefits available to the Sheriffs' Offices through the many programs and services provided by FSA far exceed the cost of membership. Even though FSA has greatly increased the number of programs and services it provides, sheriffs' membership dues have remained fixed.
