President's message

Welcome to the official website of the California State Sheriffs’ Association.

The membership of our association consists of California’s 58 elected sheriffs, along with California State Sheriffs' Asociation (CSSA) Headquarters staff, our Legislative Team, our Legal Counsel, members of the CSSA Foundation, our Corporate 100 Partners, and thousands of Associate Members from all across California. Collectively we support the role of the Sheriff as the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in each of California’s 58 counties, and we stand together on matters of public safety in the Golden State. 

Explore our website today and learn how you can help support the efforts of California’s sheriffs through membership or sponsorship opportunities. You will also discover a wide range of other resources, including a history of the role of the sheriff, information on legislation of significance to sheriffs and public safety, information about career opportunities in law enforcement and corrections, and contact information for California’s sheriffs and their agencies. You will also find current career opportunities in law enforcement and corrections, as well as a schedule of training courses on important topics that impact our communities and the men and women who serve as our deputies.
