Sheriff Edward Schroder of the Cass County Sheriff’s Office completed participation in the 117th session of the National Sheriffs’ Institute Leadership Development Course held in Quantico, Virgina, April 23-27, 2022. This no-cost program is provided by the National Institute of Corrections (NIC), U.S. Department of Justic, in collaboration with the Major County Sheriff’s of America (MCSA), the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the National Association of Counties (NACo).

Sheriff Schroder was nominated to join 23 other sheriffs from across the country for training on effective leaership within the Sheriff’s Offic, the local criminal justice system, and their community. The NSI is the only executive leadersihp training program designed specifically for sheriffs to prepare them for all matters that impact the Office of Sheriff. The NSI was first developed and presented in the early 1970s in response to a need by sheriffs to meet the evolving demands of the office. The NSI has gone through many iterations throughout its history. Since 1993, the NSI has been housed in the NIC Jails Division.

The NSI currently has two courses of study – the NSI Leadership Development course which prepares first-term serhiffs for success in office and strengthens the leadership skills of elected sheriffs; and the newly developed NSI Jail Administration course which enhances the sheriffs’ knowledge of their responsibilities in leading the operations of a correctional facility.
