Origin of the word "sheriff"
Over 1000 years ago in England, the shire, was formed when groups of hundreds banded together. The shire was the forerunner of the modern county. Just as each hundred was led by a reeve (chief), each shire had a reeve as well. To distinguish the leader of a shire from the leader of a mere hundred, the more powerful official became known as the shire-reeve.

The word shire-reeve eventually became the modern word sheriff.  Read More
