On Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions brought up sheriffs' "Anglo-American heritage" during remarks to law enforcement officials in Washington.
Sessions said in remarks at the National Sheriffs Association winter meeting, "I want to thank every sheriff in America. Since our founding, the independently elected sheriff has been the people's protector, who keeps law enforcement close to and accountable to people through the elected process." He added, "The office of sheriff is a critical part of the Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement."
Sessions continued, "We must never erode this historic office."
Invoking "Anglo-American heritage" seems to have been an impromptu decision by the attorney general. A written version of the remarks says that Sessions was supposed to say: "The sheriff is a critical part of our legal heritage."
