Iredell County Sheriff Darren Campbell has now been elected to two positions.
On Tuesday, Campbell was voted to serve on the National Sheriff’s Association’s Board of Directors. Campbell said he had previously been serving on the board in an appointed seat since earlier this year.
Now being an elected member of the board, he will serve a three-year term with the association, a news release stated. Campbell is also the only sheriff from North Carolina currently serving on the board.
“I am honored, and humbled to have been elected by other sheriffs from across the country to serve on the National Sheriff’s Association Board of Directors,” Campbell stated in the release. “I look forward to continuing to work with sheriff’s from across the country, by having an opportunity to bring attention to issues which affect law enforcement agencies both locally, as well as nationwide.”
The association met Tuesday in Louisville, Kentucky for its annual conference. The board represents all 3,080 sheriffs across the United States, seeking to establish guidance and direction for the association, a release states.
Campbell added members of the organization are often asked to provide expert testimony on law enforcement, court security and corrections issues before Congress.
The release said the NSA is one of the largest organizations of law enforcement professionals in the country, representing more than 20,000 members.
