You do not have to be qualified to be elected to any office and that includes sheriff.

Yes, in many states anyone can RUN for sheriff,and occasionally a person with a business management background gets in, and the law enforcement aspects of the job are delegated to the most qualified of the deputy sheriffs. This also works in states which have overlap with the state police, as anything requiring expert forensics, etc.would be handled by them anyway.

In states that have an office of an elected sheriff anyone can run for Sheriff. But in many states the Sheriff is a civil service position thus he is not elected.

Almost every state has a sheriff.
Some states have a Metropolitan Police Force so there is no actual Sheriff of the said county but a united town, city and county force.
Yes any Sheriffs position is open to a vote by the public.

In most counties and parishes in the US, anyone can run for sheriff.

The job is typically the manager of the county law enforcement office, and the manager of the county jail.

HOWEVER, in most states, for someone to serve as a law enforcement officer, they have to have graduated from an accredited law enforcement academy. Most states allow a newly-elected sheriff to complete the law enforcement academy shortly after the election, if the person is otherwise qualified to attend.

The short answer to your question is yes, but...
