Orleans County Sheriff Jennifer Harlow recently completed the 119th session of the National Sheriffs’ Institute Leadership Development Course held at the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia. Harlow was nominated to join 24 other sheriffs from across the country for training on effective leadership within the Sheriff’s Office, the local criminal justice system, and their community. The course, which is designed for first-term, elected sheriffs from large, medium and small departments. Harlow, who was one of three women attending the course, was appointed by Gov. Phil Scott to fill a vacancy in January 2020, but was elected for the first time to a full four-year term in November. Harlow, had previously worked for Newport City Police for 16 years. The NSI is the only executive leadership training program designed specifically for sheriffs to prepare them for all matters that impact their office.
