Sheriff details outreach, law enforcement, commendations

It’s a beautiful day in Steuben County. After a cooler than usual June we have returned to summer weather. Our tourist season is now in full swing and we expect an increase in traffic and visits to our wineries, breweries and distilleries. Your Sheriff’s Office is now partnering with the Keuka Lake Wine Trail in our ongoing prevention and education campaign to make sure that when we responsibly enjoy our venues, we have a plan to get home safely. Also, as we travel through the summer months, please remember to recognize our slow moving vehicles, both farm equipment and those in horse-drawn conveyances, and slow down around them and pass only when safe to do so.

At the Sheriff’s Office, your public servants were busy again. Your Sheriff’s Office hosted the NYS School Resource Officer Basic Course, certifying SROs from across NYS. Deputy Martin attended and is now certified as a NYS Emergency Vehicle Operation Course Instructor. Officer Sciotti attended and is now certified as a Defensive Tactics Instructor. Deputy Nybeck and Sergeant Hawk hosted and taught RADAR/LIDAR to the cadets of the Southern Tier Law Enforcement Academy. Sergeant Hawk attended the Fundamental Crisis Intervention Skills Instructor Training and is now certified to teach other police officers in crisis intervention techniques. Lieutenant Harrison led the Honor Guard in the Dairy Festival Parade and the Colonial Days Parade. Deputy Swarthout and K9 Mac attended and re-certified with the ATF as a National Odor Recognition team. Deputies attended the Yates County STOPDWI Unconventional DWI training. Deputy Nybeck and Swarthout did K9 demonstrations at the Dairy Festival and Hornell Steamers Community Day and Deputy McCoy did a K9 demonstration at Wayland School. Sheriff Allard taught Ethics and Human Trafficking to the SUNY Alfred Police Academy and attended the National Sheriff’s Association Conference as a member of the School Safety Committee. Sheriff Allard attended classes on creating a behavioral threat assessment management team, mitigating risks in an employee investigation and building a sustainable ethical culture in your agency.

June was another busy and challenging month in the Sheriff’s Office. Our investigators and deputies were tasked with three death investigations, three assault investigations, two strangulation or choking investigations, one burglary investigation, one terroristic threat investigation, one fleeing an officer investigation, one unlawful imprisonment investigation, one leaving the scene of a crash investigation, one reckless endangerment investigation, two fire investigations, three welfare fraud investigations, eleven larceny investigations, six grand larceny investigations, one drug investigation, eleven harassment investigations, twelve criminal mischief investigations, seven endangering a child investigations, one animal abuse investigation, one menacing investigation and two stolen property investigations. Our Patrol Division was tasked with multiple domestic incident investigations along with mental health detainments and assisting other agencies, including four intoxicated or impaired driving arrests.

All of our deputies and officers performed in an outstanding fashion and we received three commendations from community members detailing the excellence of service they received.

We continue to pray for the families and victims of mass casualty events and all Ukrainians suffering under Russian aggression.

Thank you for supporting the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office in these challenging times and stay safe!
