The Role of the High Sheriff

The Office of High Sheriff is an independent non-political Royal appointment for a single year.

The role of the modern High Sheriff is to ‘uphold and lend active support to the principal organs of the Constitution – the Royal Family, the Judiciary, the Police, the Prison services and other law enforcement agencies, the emergency services, local authorities, church, faith and belief groups’.

Many High Sheriffs also assist Community Foundations and local charities working with vulnerable and other at-risk individuals; both in endorsing and helping to raise the profile of their valuable work.

High Sheriffs receive no remuneration and no part of the expense of a High Sheriff’s year falls on the public purse.
