Chief Amidon appaulds fellow first responders and thanks the village for supporting the department
Village of Canisteo,
I wanted to let our residents know of how pleased and thankful I am to be the Police Chief of the Village of Canisteo and how proud and appreciative of the members of the Canisteo Village Police Department. The month of October was beyond busy for these members who stepped up and worked extra hours, changed shift schedules and came in on their own time to serve and protect our residents. With the existing manpower we were still able to accomplish and achieve our community needs for you and your families.
We had an exceptional month with 275 calls in the village, 77 total arrests including 36 Felony arrests (Burglaries, Strangulation, Grand Larcenies, Criminal Mischief’s, Assault, Criminal Contempt, Family Court arrests, Resisting Arrest etc). We had 8 trips to the Steuben County Jail, 1 Trip to Steuben County Family Court for a Juvenile Delinquent, A warrant pick up in Livingston County, and 1 Trip to Elmira Psychiatric Center for a Mental Health evaluation. The officers also issued 40 Traffic Tickets during this month. I am beyond satisfied of their work effort and the service they provided to the community! We are a busy community for police services, and this is known throughout Steuben County. Our officers will continue to give you their best and be there when in need. Again, as the Police Chief of the Village of Canisteo I want to applaud these hardworking public servants for all their hard work and dedication to the Village of Canisteo and the residents they serve.
Please thank these young men and women as they are the ones that protect you day and night and are a phone call away when in need. Thank you all for your respect and support from the Canisteo Village Police Department.
Chief K. C. Amidon
