Difference Between Police and Sheriff Departments

The main difference between police and sheriff departments is the jurisdictional area they each represent. A sheriff department provides law enforcement and jail services for a county or other divisions of a state. ( ie. Los Angeles County ). A police department provides law enforcement for a specific town, city or municipality. There is some overlap in areas that both police and sheriff departments provide law enforcement services. This may vary from state to state. Additionally a sheriff is voted into office and is usually the highest law enforcement agency in a county.  A sheriff’s term in office is usually 2 years unless re-elected. Police officers are not elected and are usually only have jurisdiction over a specific city or town. Police chiefs are typically appointed by the mayor of a city or town.
