As Sheriff, Miranda will oversee the Sheriff’s Office which primarily serves as the civil law enforcement agency for New York City in a number of areas. In addition to preserving the peace, the Sheriff’s Office serves and enforces mandates and orders issued from local or state courts, the federal government, foreign countries, the New York City Tax Tribunal, and the Commissioner of the New York City Department of Finance.
“The prerequisite to prosperity is public safety and justice, and the people who serve this city embody that maxim,” said Mayor Adams. “Anthony Miranda has spent decades protecting and serving the people of this city, and, as Sheriff, he will bring his experience, expertise, and passion to ensure the office fulfills its mission and serves all New Yorkers fairly and equitably.”
