Dawson County Sheriff Jeff Johnson recently completed participation in the 115th session of the National Sheriffs’ Institute (NSI) held in Aurora, Colo., from Sept. 24-28. The NSI is the only national executive development program designed for sheriffs. This no-cost program is cosponsored by the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) and the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA). Johnson joined 28 other sheriffs from across the country for training on contemporary challenges facing America’s sheriffs today. In light of those challenges, the sheriffs explored the role of the local sheriff in providing effective leadership for the public good in such areas as public safety, criminal justice system policy, community relations, and organizational effectiveness and efficiency.
