High Sheriff of Dorset

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The High Sheriff of Dorset is an ancient High Sheriff title which has been in existence for over one thousand years.[1] Until 1567 the Sheriff of Somerset was also the Sheriff of Dorset.

On 1 April 1974, under the provisions of the Local Government Act 1972, the title of Sheriff of Dorset was retitled High Sheriff of Dorset.[2]

The position was once a powerful position responsible for collecting taxes and enforcing law and order in Dorset. In modern times the high sheriff has become a ceremonial role, presiding over public ceremonies.
