The office of Sheriff is a constitutionally created office with duties prescribed by the Utah legislature. The sheriff is the chief law enforcement officer for the county and is elected every 4 years.
The sheriff has county-wide jurisdiction, but in practice, mostly concentrates activities outside city limits where municipal officers cannot operate.
The Sheriff has been charged with the responsibility to maintain the public peace and protecting life and property of all citizens of Grand County. Obligations and responsibilities have continuously grown throughout the years.
