The University noted all the accomplishments of Dua and offered some explanation for the historic title: 

The High Sheriff is one of the oldest roles in the country going back over a thousand years, and pre-dating Robin Hood by several hundred years.

The High Sheriff plays an increasingly active and supportive role within the county both in relation to the Police and emergency services and in lending encouragement to public sector agencies such as the probation and prison services and to voluntary sector organisations involved in crime reduction and social cohesion. The principal formal duties of High Sheriffs today include attendance at royal visits in the County and support for Her Majesty’s High Court Judges when on Circuit.
