Local Sheriff Attends ASA Winter Conference


The Arkansas Sheriffs’ Association (ASA) is comprised of 75 Sheriffs from across the state who proudly serve and protect the citizens of Arkansas. Recently, Scott County Sheriff Randy Shores attended the winter conference, which was held in Little Rock.

The ASA holds a summer and winter convention every year to offer Sheriffs the opportunity to elect board members, discuss the status of the ASA, and to assist each other with different issues such as – new laws, equipment, procedures, crime prevention, and other relative topics. The association also offers various training throughout the year to assist Sheriffs and their Deputies in protecting and serving the citizens of Arkansas.

“They bring in speakers, like this time they had someone there from the FBI,” noted Shores. He added that they discussed things such as jail management, and changes to laws.

The next conference meeting will take place in August.
