LULING — St. Charles Parish Sheriff Greg Champagne was sworn in as president of the 3080-member National Sheriffs’ Association on January 26, 2023 at the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office Training and Special Services Center in Luling, Louisiana.

Sheriff Champagne is serving out the unexpired term of Retiring N.S.A. President Sheriff William Bohnyak of Orange County, Vermont.

Sheriff Champagne has previously served as the N.S.A. President during 2016-17. This June, Sheriff Champagne will be reinstalled as President of the N.S.A. at the organization’s annual conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan to serve a term of one full year. This is the first time any sheriff has been elected to serve twice as President in the 82-year history of the organization.

Sheriff Champagne has served as a board member of the N.S.A. for 19 years and held virtually every leadership position of the organization including chair of the Legal Affairs Committee.

The National Sheriffs’ Association was chartered in 1940 and is a professional association dedicated to serving the Office of Sheriff and its affiliates through law enforcement education and training, and through the provision of general law enforcement informational resources. N.S.A. represents thousands of sheriffs, deputies and other law enforcement, public safety professionals, and concerned citizens nationwide.

Through the years, N.S.A. has provided programs for Sheriffs, their deputies, chiefs of police, and others in the field of criminal justice to perform their jobs in the best possible manner and to better serve the people of their cities, counties, or jurisdictions.

The National Sheriffs’ Association headquarters is located in Alexandria, Virginia and offers police training, police information, court security training, jail information and other law enforcement services to sheriffs, deputies, and others throughout the nation. N.S.A. has worked to forge cooperative relationships with local, state, and federal criminal justice professionals across the nation to network and share information about homeland security programs and projects.
