The Nevada Sheriffs’ & Chiefs’ Association was formed in 1953 as a professional, social, nonprofit (501 c6) Association dedicated to the cooperation and understanding of all law enforcement agencies in the State of Nevada in order to provide law enforcement services of the highest professional quality to the citizens of the State of Nevada. The Association was formed to encourage fellowship between law enforcement agencies and to promote charitable and educational interests, as well as compassionate and equitable public service for public safety in Nevada.
We promote the professional and personal development of our members through innovative services, training, and camaraderie.
We make a positive impact on the quality of life in the
communities we serve through proactive leadership in:
We are the professional organization of elected Sheriffs, Chiefs of Police and other leaders of Police and Public Safety Organizations in the State of Nevada. We value:
· Continuous Improvement
We aim to earn and maintain the unqualified respect of the people our members serve and protect, and to be respected leaders in our communities, our state, our nation, and internationally.
The membership of the NvSCA are passionate about what we're doing. With the challenges facing law enforcement on a daily basis, we look to employ the best personnel possible within our respective agencies and to be on the forefront of public safety to the people we serve.
The backbone of each agency are the volunteers who support the vision and the mission of public service. We can help you become a part of that mission in your community by volunteering with your local law enforcement agency.
