Oneida County Sheriff’s Office Law Enforcement Division Gets Stamp Of Approval
The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office Law Enforcement Division has been approved for Re-Accreditation by the New York State Law Enforcement Agency Accreditation Council.
The 129th quarterly meeting took place in Albany on Thursday.
The ceremonial meeting was held at the offices of the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services.
The Sheriff’s Office was first accredited in 2006 and has been re-accredited every five years since then.
The Sheriff’s Office has met, and in many cases, exceeded the professional policing standards set forth by the New York State Law Enforcement Agency Accreditation Council.
Accepting the Re-Accreditation Award from the Acting Commissioner of the NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services Rossana Rosado and Accreditation Council Chairman Gregory Austin were Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol, Undersheriff Joseph Lisi, and Captain Christine Reilly.
Captain Christine Reilly was also presented the John Kimball O’Neil Certificate of Achievement for her work as the Accreditation Project Manager for the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.
All three divisions of the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, Law Enforcement, Corrections and Civil, are accredited, making it one of only a handful of Sheriff’s Offices across the state that are fully accredited.
The Sheriff’s Office is one of only three accredited law enforcement agencies in Oneida County.
The Utica and Rome Police Departments are also fully accredited.
In existence for over two hundred years, the Sheriff's Office is the oldest law enforcement agency in Oneida County.
