Anuire » Title » Sheriff
A Sheriff is in principle a legal official with responsibility for a county. In practice, the specific combination of legal, political, and ceremonial duties of a sheriff varies greatly from realm to realm.
The word "sheriff" is a contraction of the term "shire reeve". The term, from the Old Andu sc?rgerefa, designated an imperial official responsible for keeping the peace (a "reeve") throughout a shire or county on behalf of the Emperor. This partially included making sure that any taxes or levies were paid.
