The office of the sheriff is one of the oldest in known history. One of the first mentions of the word โ€œsheriffโ€ was around 600 BC in Babylonia. . Fourteen English sheriffs and past sheriffs played a major role in the creation of the Magna Carta and were present when King John signed the document in 1215 AD. The Magna Carta has been called, โ€œthe greatest constitutional document of all times โ€“ the foundation of the freedom of the individual against the arbitrary authority of the despot.โ€ ๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ข๐˜ญ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ค๐˜ฆ๐˜ฑ๐˜ต ๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ข ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ง๐˜ง, ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฃ๐˜บ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ, ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต ๐˜ข๐˜ฑ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฐ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฃ๐˜บ ๐˜ข ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ช๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ช๐˜ณ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ. . The sheriff eventually came to the New World colonies in North America. The office of the sheriff, and the men elected to the position, moved into the frontiers of the Old West with westward migration. Some believe that the name โ€œAmericaโ€ itself was derived from a historical sheriff; High Sheriff of Bristol, England: Richard Amerycke who was elected in 1503. . Our founding fathers also mentioned the role of the sheriff in their writings. Thomas Jefferson wrote, โ€œThe office of the sheriff is the most important of all the executive offices of the county.โ€ . In Part Two, we'll discuss how these historical beginnings shaped and formed the office of the sheriff for modern times.
