What is the mission on CSOPA? Our goal is to educate citizens and elected officials, from sheriffs to commissioners to judges on their Constitutional rights and responsibilities. Our movement is apolitical as a constitutional Sheriff not defined as Democrat, Republican or Libertarian. A constitutional Sheriff, in reference to their OATH, their citizenry, and the constitution is dedicated to UPHOLD – DEFEND – PROTECT – SERVE. The sheriff is a citizen first. Elected by citizens (the people). And answers ONLY TO THE PEOPLE.
