The Sheriff is the noble responsible for crude law enforcement until your fortress grows large enough to require a Captain of the guard. 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 sometimes a good thing. A sheriff with good strength, training or a weapon could heavily injure or kill a criminal, which is very bad if said criminal is a legendary dwarf who did nothing wrong but fail to make the 50 adamantine war hammers a noble demanded.
When your fortress reaches 50 dwarves, the sheriff's position will disappear. A Captain of the guard must then be appointed as law enforcement agent.
