Sheriff Craig S. DuMond of the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office completed participation in the 115th session of the National Sheriffs’ Institute  held in Aurora, Colorado, September 23-29, 2018. 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 (NIC) and the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA). Sheriff DuMond is the second Sheriff in the history of Delaware County to graduate from the NSI.

Sheriff DuMond was selected as one of 29 other sheriffs from across the United States for training on the complex and contemporary challenges facing America’s Sheriffs today. In light of those challenges, the Sheriffs explored the role of the local Sheriff in providing effective executive leadership for the public good in such areas as public safety, criminal justice system policy, community relations, and organization effectiveness and efficiency.

Tim Woods, NSA Director of Professional Development, said, “Sheriff DuMond is a leader with vision for the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office. It is an honor to have Sheriff DuMond join the more than 2,900 graduates of the NSI since 1973.”
