Sheriffs shape jail conditions and enjoy great policy discretion on
matters ranging from immigration to solitary confinement, but their
authority and decisions are often overlooked, which poses a challenge
for change and accountability. Each edition of The Badge, a series on
The Appeal: Political Report, will examine a facet of the powers and
responsibilities of sheriffs.
