Sheriff’s Department is reaccredited
The Livingston County Sheriff’s Department has received reaccreditation from the New York State Division of Criminal Justices Services.
This is the third reaccreditation for the Department since its original in 1997, said Sheriff John M. York.
To be reaccredited, the department must meet standards established by the New York State Law Enforcement Accreditation Council.
Full accreditation across all five divisions, Corrections, Law Enforcement, 911 Center, Court Security and Civil Division, was York’s priority during his first term in office after being elected in 1989. He said is extremely proud of the agency’s achievements in the accreditation program and to hold the distinction of being the first fully accredited sheriff’s office in New York State.
York has worked with all divisions and most importantly the accreditation manager, Deputy A. Gary Miller, a retired school teacher and brigadier general of the New York Army Guard.
York recognized Miller for his efforts at the ceremony in Albany by awarding him an engraved ceremonial chest for his tremendous efforts in the accreditation program.
The sheriff commended everyone within the agency for the distinctions that it has earned.
He also credited the county Board of Supervisors and County Administrator Ian Coyle for supporting of the Sheriff’s office efforts in public safety service responsibilities to the community.
