The duties of the office of Sheriff are quite varied. The sheriff has the important duty to prevent crimes, investigate criminal conduct that has occurred, and arrest criminals. Sheriffs and their deputies must be thoroughly acquainted with the Tennessee criminal code. The sheriff should develop a good working relationship with the staff of the district attorney general's office. Sheriffs also serve as jailers and many serve as superintendent of the county workhouse, which in some counties, the jail is also the workhouse.
