Sheriff Allen Selected for National Advisory Committee Regarding Jails

At the invitation of the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA), Humboldt County Sheriff Mike Allen recently participated in a Working Group meeting at the headquarters of the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) in Washington, DC.

Founded in 1940, NSA is a professional membership organization that represents more than 3,000 elected Sheriffs throughout the United States. NIC is a center of learning, innovation, and leadership within the U.S. Department of Justice that shapes and advances effective correctional practice and public policy.

Sheriff Allen was among only six sheriffs from across the United States selected by NSA to contribute his expertise at the July 24-26, 2018 meeting of the Working Group. Funded by NIC, the meeting of experts was convened to begin development of a national curriculum for newly-elected Sheriffs on jail administration. The National Sheriffs’ Association sponsored and paid for all travel costs for this meeting.
