What is a Sheriff?

We recognize the office of Sheriff as something from the American frontier, however, the role of sheriff goes back to England where sheriffs were usually appointed by the Crown to oversee the laws of the county or shire.

The Constitutional Sheriff can be traced back to 1634 in America. Historically, the word “sheriff”, an official for an area called a shire, morphed into a contraction of “shire reeve“, then to “shrievalty”, and on to “sheriffdom” to designate the jurisdiction of a sheriff, long before the legendary Robin Hood and remains today, as Sheriff, as defined in our Constitutions.

Forty States have drafted their constitutions to include an elected sheriff position.

The office of sheriff is a constitutional office created by Article 11, § 5 of the Washington State Constitution which denotes “The sheriff” is the chief executive officer and conservator of the peace of the county.

The Constitutional Sheriff is a judicial officer, that “shall be elected by the qualified voters of their respective counties for a term of four years and shall have such qualifications, powers and duties as provided by general law.”

The constitutional identified sheriff is bound by their oath and state constitution to serve and protect We the People from all law breakers, foreign and domestic, that would infringe the People’s rights or Liberty. The Sheriff is ultimate authority in their jurisdiction.


We the People consent to legislated law only as we defined it in the Constitution for the United States of America

Thomas Jefferson said it best when describing a check on government by a sheriff… “we bound government down by the chains of the Constitution”.

“We the People defined that Law in the Constitution Article VI as: “This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.” Simply put We the People are bound and judged under the Common Law and statutes where we have given our consent and government is bound and judged under the Constitution that We the People ordained.” As a Peer of the People, I affirm the supreme law of our county is the Constitution, this common law makes common sense to the common man.

Only the Sheriff can stop the encroachments of violations of our God given and constitutionally guaranteed rights.

The United States Supreme Court said: “The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void and ineffective for any purpose, since its unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment… In legal contemplation, it is as inoperative as if it had never been passed… Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no right, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection and justifies no acts performed under it… A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one. An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing law. Indeed insofar as a statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the land, (the Constitution) it is superseded thereby. No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.” Bonnett v. Vallier, 116 N.W. 885, 136 Wis. 193 (1908); NORTON v. SHELBY COUNTY, 118 U.S. 425 (1886).
