Sheriffs Week 2019

September 22, 2019 - September 28, 2019

Each September, New York’s Sheriffs participate in Sheriffs’ Week, a week-long event that celebrates the significant contributions made by the office of sheriff–the highest-ranking law enforcement officer in the county–in county government and in the statewide criminal justice system. To mark the occasion, local celebrations by the state’s 58 Sheriffs will be going on in virtually every county across the State.

We have asked Governor Cuomo to declare September 22 – 29, 2019 Sheriffs Week in New York.  

Fifty-five of New York’s 58 sheriffs are elected officials, accountable to the citizen voter every 4 years and responsible for the complex operations of a sheriff’s office, which can include criminal law enforcement, traffic patrol, emergency rescue operations, homeland security programs, SWAT operations, civil emergency response, jail operations, correctional alternative management, courtroom security, and civil litigation process. The sheriff also takes an active role in community crime prevention efforts, victims’ assistance programs, and drug awareness education in our schools.
