Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea has just completed a prestigious program in Aurora, Colorado. The 108th session of the National Sheriffs’ Institute (NSI) was held August 31 to September 4. The NSI is the only national executive development program designed for sheriffs. The no-cost program is co-sponsored by the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) and the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA). Sheriff Honea is the first sheriff of Butte County to graduate from the NSI.

Sheriff Honea joined 26 other sheriffs from across the country for training on various challenges facing sheriffs today. Honea explored the role of the local sheriff in providing leadership for the public in public safety, criminal justice system policy, community relations, and organization effectiveness and efficiency.

Hilary Burgess, NSA Manager of Training, said, “Sheriff Honea is a leader with vision for the Butte County Sheriff’s Office." Sheriff Honea joins more than 2,500 graduates of the NSI since 1973.

The NIC is a division of the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Prisons. It is the primary federal source of technical assistance, training, and information services for state and local corrections. NIC provides a wide variety of services to the nation’s jails, most of which are the responsibility of sheriffs.

The NSA is a non-profit professional association located in Alexandria, Virginia. NSA represents the nearly 3,100 elected sheriffs across the nation and has more than 20,000 members, including law enforcement professionals, state and federal government employees, concerned citizens, students, and others. NSA administers the highly successful National Neighborhood Watch and Triad programs.
