High Sheriff of Worcestershire

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

This is a list of sheriffs and since 1998 high sheriffs of Worcestershire.

The Sheriff is the oldest secular office under the Crown. Formerly the 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. Under the provisions of the Local Government Act 1972, on 1 April 1974 the office previously known as Sheriff was retitled High Sheriff.

Under the same act Herefordshire and Worcestershire were merged to form the new county of Hereford and Worcester, therefore the office of Sheriff of Worcestershire was replaced by the High Sheriff of Hereford and Worcester. In 1998 the office of High Sheriff of Hereford and Worcester was replaced by the High Sheriff of Worcestershire (and the High Sheriff of Herefordshire) when the two counties were de-merged.
