The sheriff is the noble responsible for crude law enforcement until your fortress grows large enough to require a captain of the guard, designated through the obles screen. They will punish lawbreaking dwarves through beatings or imprisonment. Without a jail, jail sentences will be "commuted" to beatings as well.
(When appointing a sheriff, note that having a weak dwarf take the position is sometimes a good thing. A sheriff with good strength or training could heavily injure or kill a criminal who might have done nothing worse than push over a handmill in anger.)
When your fortress first elects a mayor (after reaching 50 dwarves), the sheriff's position will disappear and the sheriff will revert to their normal profession title. A captain of the guard must be nominated to enforce the law in larger settlements.
