This article is about an older version of DF.

The position of sheriff opens once the population of your fortress reaches 20. The sheriff will subdue and imprison lawbreaking dwarves. Without a jail, the sheriff will have no choice but to issue summary justice in the form of a beating. The sheriff will still perform justice jobs if drafted to the military. Having a weak sheriff is a good thing. A sheriff with good strength, training or a weapon could heavily injure or kill a "criminal" whose "crime" was not being able to make a glass throne on a sandless map.

When your fortress reaches 50 dwarves, the sheriff will be promoted to Captain of the guard.

The sheriff can be designated through the nobles screen.
