Review of New Court Cases Affecting Sheriffs' Offices
Our Association reviews and reports on court cases and administrative opinions on a regular basis so that Sheriffs and their staff officers learn in a timely way about new developments in the law. We publish and distribute UPDATE, which provides reviews of court cases and administrative opinions. It is provided free of charge to Sheriffs and their staff members, and the distribution list now is over 400 persons. (We can easily add County Attorneys or others in county government to our distribution list upon request.) In 2007, we published eight editions of UPDATE.
UPDATE includes reviews of court cases and administrative opinions on issues dealing with law enforcement, corrections, civil process, court security, labor/management issues, civil rights, and other issues of interest to Sheriffs and their staffs. Many counties use UPDATE as part of their roll-call or other training provided to deputy sheriffs and correction officers.
