Sheriff strong since 1933

The Virginia Sheriffs’ Association (VSA) gives a voice to Virginia sheriffs and deputies.

  • VSA represents sheriffs and deputies on criminal justice issues, on a state level, before boards, commissions and the legislative bodies of Virginia.
  • VSA provides sheriffs, deputies and the public with information about emerging law enforcement issues, corrections, crime prevention and other topics as related to the sheriff’s office.
  • VSA is consistently requesting Virginia’s Governor and General Assembly to increase salaries, enhance retirement and improve conditions for deputy sheriffs.
