“Throughout the year, the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association consistently provides us with invaluable opportunities for learning and networking,” said Sheriff Roberson. “This has been a great meeting, and I look forward to more gatherings like this that bring together the sheriffs of North Carolina.”

The Association’s Spring Meeting is an annual opportunity for North Carolina sheriffs and sheriffs’ personnel to attend various training classes meant to enhance their leadership skills and provide valuable resources that they can use as they carry out their everyday duties.

In addition to training classes, Sheriff Roberson, who serves as the First Vice President of the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association, also had the opportunity to network and collaborate with other sheriffs and sheriffs’ personnel from across the state. Training classes this year included: dealing with sovereign citizens, first amendment auditors, mental-health strains associated with a law enforcement career, and effective communication tactics. 

North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association President Sheriff Darren Campbell of Iredell County described the event, saying, “Spring Meeting is our first opportunity of the year to come together for networking and training classes. This week’s curriculum offered us a great opportunity to be more aware of the mental health challenges our fellow law enforcement officers face because of the jobs we do as well as fine-tune our skills related to interacting with members of our communities.”

Founded in 1922, the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association is a statewide not-for-profit professional and educational organization of our state’s 100 sheriffs. Through their Association, sheriffs work to strengthen the law enforcement profession and services their offices provide to the people of North Carolina.
