Chain of Command
From the beginning of English and Scottish law, the Sheriff’s office was looked at as the center of the local administration of justice. It is interesting to note that the Office of the Sheriff is more than 1,000 years old.

The first office title was those two words put together, “Shire-Reeve”. As time went on, the word got shortened to what is used today, “Sheriff”.
The Sheriff in command of the Warren County Sheriff’s Office is Sheriff Larry L. Sims. He was elected in 2009 and is still serving today. There are records of Sheriffs serving all the way back to the 1800s with records starting at Sheriff George Harlan who served from 1803-1805.
