1. The sheriff of each county may, by written designation filed with the county clerk, select one duly trained and qualified undersheriff to perform any of the administrative duties provided under chapter 50 of Title 2A of the New Jersey Statutes on behalf of the county sheriff, so long as the county sheriff deems that it is necessary and appropriate for those duties to be carried out by the undersheriff.
