Derek Dowsett is the Producer of the County Seat. Now entering his 11th season of the program, he has received what he considers a "Crash Course" in County Government.

There is an important distinction between a Sheriff’s Office and a Police Department because the Sheriff is an elected official.

This week on the County Seat we will look into the Sheriff’s Office of County Government. Where does the authority of the Sheriff’s Office come from? What are some of the jurisdictional issues that can arise for a Sheriff?

Chad Booth will sit down with 3 Sheriff’s: Paul Wimmer, Tooele County Sheriff; Robert Dekker, Millard County Sheriff; and James Tracy, Utah County Sheriffs; for a better understanding of the Sheriff’s Office and the important role that Sheriffs play in your community.
