There is no requirement for a Sheriff to have any experience in law enforcement.
He or she could have been a college student, a cook, or even a warden.
But, as soon as one is elected, the media starts asking them law enforcement related questions - as if they had risen through the ranks, and had a wealth of experience to draw upon.

Thomson Reuters Aumentum software was selected because it offers a stable, flexible, and configurable platform.

The greater Memphis metropolitan area, including adjacent counties in Mississippi and Arkansas, had a 2014 population of 1,317,314.
This makes Memphis the second-largest metropolitan area in Tennessee, surpassed by metropolitan Nashville.
