Welcome to the website of the High Sheriff of Hertfordshire.
I hope that you will find it useful to learn more about the historic role of the High Sheriff, the oldest continuous secular office under the Crown, and how it is being carried out in Hertfordshire today.
The High Sheriff is appointed by Her Majesty the Queen to represent her in the County of Hertfordshire in matters relating to law and order. In practice, this means supporting the judges, police, magistrates, prison and probation services, the armed forces, emergency services and the wide range of other public and voluntary sector and community services that work towards making Hertfordshire a better place for everyone.
Each High Sheriff is appointed for a year and my term of office runs from April 2020 to April 2021.
