In the more than 500 counties that have joined the national Stepping Up initiative, sheriffs play an integral role in collaborating with county leadership and other community partners to implement policies, practices, and programs that support their efforts to reduce the number of people with mental illnesses in jails while ensuring community safety. Stepping Up and the National Sheriffs’ Association are co-hosting a webinar to outline the benefits to sheriffs of engaging in the initiative and to share concrete ideas on how sheriffs can help lead this work in their counties. Participants will hear from national experts and fellow sheriffs from communities of varying sizes about their work and the impact it has had in their communities and departments.




The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) is one of the largest associations of law enforcement professionals in the United States, representing more than 3,000 elected sheriffs across the nation, and a total membership of more than 20,000. NSA is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising the level of professionalism among sheriffs, their deputies, and others in the field of criminal justice and public safety. Throughout its seventy-seven year history, NSA has served as an information clearinghouse for sheriffs, deputies, chiefs of police, other law enforcement professionals, state governments and the federal government.
