Our President

What a year it has been for the Pennsylvania Sheriffs’ Association and all of our great 67 County Sheriff’s offices in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. My term as PSA President began with a very modified summer conference last year and a swearing-in on the Pennsylvania Capitol steps due to the pandemic. I’m proud of how well our Association and its members responded to the crisis that caused the closing of courthouses, revisions to the license to carry permit process, and many other adjustments for our families and staff. However, we also can’t forget to honor the memory of those staff and family members who lost their lives due to Covid. During the last year, we accomplished so much, including the opportunity to present as part of a team on our harm reduction efforts at the NSA conference–a first for Pennsylvania. That team also presented at an international conference, another first for PSA. Those and other efforts resulted in the large growth and stature of the program nationally. Additionally, I gave testimony before the House Judiciary Committee. We continued to solidify the relationship between the PA Chiefs and PSA. And, of course, we were able to work closely with the Pennsylvania State Police and other stakeholders to develop new Covid-related license-to-carry protocols. I leave the office of president honored and humbled to have served the Pennsylvania Sheriff’s Association. Like you, I look forward to our upcoming summer conference knowing the association will be in very good hands as we transition to Sheriff Groody as its president. Thank you for your commitment to the PSA Association, the Commonwealth, and the public we all serve.

Sheriff James Custer
