    are your sheriffs elected and if so how long is their term?  I am Canadian and we don't have sheriffs, but only police officers who are not elected or appointed.  They must apply for the position, go through an rigorous interview process and be selected based on education (police academy is mandatory)and background checks.

    •  Yes, they are elected (1+ / 0-)

      They are elected every 4 years. Sheriff Joe has been elected 5 times in Maricopa county.

      He is one of the dirtiest campaigners this state has ever seen (for any office).

      In 2004, he pushed a story that his opponent had raped his adoptive mother.
