Written by Theresa Rose on April 22, 2015

Henry County Sheriff Richard McNamee completed participation in the 107th session of the National Sheriff’s Institute held in Aurora, Colorado, April 12-17. The NSI is the only national executive development program designed for sheriffs. This no-cost program is co-sponsored by the National Institute of Corrections and the National Sheriffs’ Association. Sheriff McNamee is the first Henry County Sheriff to graduate from the NSI.

Sheriff McNamee joined 27 other sheriffs from across the country for training on contemporary challenges facing America’s sheriffs today. In light of those challenges, the sheriffs explored the role of the local sheriff in providing effective leadership for the public good in such areas as public safety, criminal justice system policy, community relations and organization effectiveness and efficiency.

Fred G. Wilson, NSA Director of Operations, said, “Sheriff McNamee is a leader with vision of the Henry County Sheriff’s office. It is an honor to have Sheriff McNamee join the more than 2,500 graduates of the NSI since 1973.”
