About Me

About Jim

My name is Jim Canaday, and I am the Sheriff of Raleigh County.  I am proud of the fact that I have been a part of the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office since 2000. I began my career when the Sheriff’s Office was located in the basement of the Raleigh County Commission Building.

We were under-equipped, under-paid, and ineffective at working with other entities within the county for funding or equipment.  I started as an entry-level Deputy and now head of one of the most dynamic, respected, and well-equipped agencies in the State of West Virginia.  The change did not occur overnight, but it was earned through vision, persistence, and communication.
