Sheriff history
The Office of the Sheriff is more than 1,000 years old. From the beginning of English and Scottish law, the sheriff's office was the center of the local administration of justice. The word "reeve" meant an administrative office and the word "shire" was the equivalent of a county. Therefore, the first office title was "Shire-Reeve", which was in time, shortened to the word "Sheriff" as we know it today.
