    I may be completly wrong, but if he's elected, I think nobody's over him.

        That took one right click and drag, and three left clicks. 14-15 seconds. Way to do your research there, buddy!

        I charge $30/hour, so I guess you owe me about a penny.

            The sheriff answers to the voters. That's the way an elected office works. Duh.

                  Hey, write this down everybody.

                  Not only was I the first to come up with an answer but I appear to be right.

                  Thats a first.

                    Sheriff's Boss

                    Narco is indeed correct for the state of GA. The Governor is the only person who can remove a Sheriff from office. The "boss" over the Sheriff are the people who elected him. I am sure there is some provision, as there is with most elected positions, allowing the people to recall the Sheriff if he proves himself too incompetent or too unpopular. If memory serves correctly, the county Coroner acts as Sheriff should he be unable to perform his duties. Piece of advice AB, if you are thinking about opposing the Sheriff, don't. Unless you can substantiate complete incompetency or an heinous illegal act it would be unwise. In almost all cases, the Sheriff has been in law enforcement for a very long time and knows exactly what he is doing and has probably been doing it in his county for most if not all of his career. In addition to being competent law enforcement officers, they are outstanding politicians. Oh yeah, lets not forget the fact that every Sheriff in this state probably knows every other Sheriff personally as well as professionally. Let me repeat this for your benefit: If you intend on having a career in law enforcement in this, or most of our surrounding states, it would be unwise of you to go against the Sheriff.

                      The Sheriff is the chief law enforcement officer of his county.(In many states)Procedures for removing a Sheriff from office vary from state to state,and the removal must usually be for cause. As has been noted, the voters of a given county are the ones who can and sometimes do remove a Sheriff. This is done by not re-electing him.

                        In GA the Sheriff is the chief law enforcement officer in the county they are elected in.
