Legislative Day is an opportunity for sheriffs in North Carolina to travel to the General Assembly to meet their legislators one-on-one and discuss public safety issues related to their counties and the Office of Sheriff. A large number of sheriffs and command staff attended and discussed issues such as increasing punishments for crimes related to fentanyl, protecting the power grid from attack and enhancing recruitment and retention efforts in the law enforcement profession.
