Florida Sheriffs Association

The History of the Florida Sheriffs Association

Founded in 1893, the Florida Sheriffs Association is one of the largest and most successful state law enforcement associations in the nation -- unifying Florida sheriffs in purpose and voice for the protection of Florida’s citizens and visitors. A not-for-profit corporation, FSA membership is made up of the 67 sheriffs of Florida plus approximately 3,000 business leaders and 100,000 private citizens throughout the state who support local law enforcement.


For more than 125 years, the Florida Sheriffs Association has been at the forefront of many substantial issues affecting our state.
