High Sheriff of Warwickshire

High Sheriff Of Warwickshire

The High Sheriff is the oldest secular office under the Crown. Formerly the High Sheriff was the principal law enforcement officer in the county but over the centuries most of the responsibilities associated with the post have been transferred elsewhere or are now defunct, so that its functions are now largely ceremonial. The High Sheriff changes every March.

For a period prior to the middle of the 16th century the High Sheriff of Warwickshire was also the High Sheriff of Leicestershire.
