Illinois Sheriffs' Association
As an organization of peace officers, our highest priority is to protect lives, property, and to make communities safer places to live, work, and raise our children.
We believe our youth is the key to the future.
Fostering the exchange of vital information among Sheriffs, peace officers and law enforcement leadership statewide.
Together, the Illinois Sheriffs' Association is making progress in the right direction by providing our Peace Officers with the resources they need.
Who We Are
The Illinois Sheriffs’ Association was founded in 1928. Initially, its purpose was to create better communication and cooperation between Sheriffs and encourage more professional training and growth. Over the years, the ISA has expanded its goals and objectives to include training and development for Sheriffs and their support teams.
The Association also realized that today’s youth hold the key to society’s future. So the ISA decided to encourage youth by supporting and creating various civic and youth-oriented programs. Through community outreach and the monetary support of its various memberships, the ISA continues to strengthen several important initiatives for our youth.
Keeping lives safe and the well-being of our children are two of the most important investments we can make. Our sincere thanks for the commitment of our men and women in uniform along with the loyal support of citizens and businesses throughout Illinois. Together, we are making significant progress!
