Careers at NSA

Located in Alexandria, Virginia, the National Sheriffs' Association is the voice of our nation's 3,000+ sheriffs.

Join our staff of dedicated professionals in helping our nation's sheriffs, their deputies, and others in the field of criminal justice perform their jobs in the best possible manner to better serve the people of their communities.

NSA serves as the center of a vast network of law enforcement information, filling requests for information daily and enabling criminal justice professionals, including police officers, sheriffs, and deputies, to locate the information and programs they need. NSA recognizes the need to seek information from the membership, particularly the sheriff and the state sheriffs' associations, in order to meet the needs and concerns of individual NSA members. While working on the national level, NSA has continued to seek grass-roots guidance, ever striving to work with and for its members, clients, and citizens of the nation.
