Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty advises this week, May 15 through May 21 is National Police Week.
In 1962 President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as the day of recognition and the week of which the 15th falls as National Police Week. The week pays tribute to the fallen Officers/Deputy Sheriffs/Troopers who died in the course of their duties.
We also recognize our current members who serve with honor and distinction in their duties.
Your Deputy Sheriffs assigned to the Police Services Bureau, which encompasses both the Patrol Division and Criminal Investigations Division, have a wide variety of responsibilities ranging from general patrol, to traffic enforcement on highways including Interstate 390, criminal investigations, civil services, undercover narcotic investigations, school safety, DWI enforcement, Marine Patrol services, and many more.
Please join us in never forgetting those who lost their life protecting their communities and in celebrating your Deputies who currently serve here in Livingston County.
“The members assigned to the Patrol Division and Criminal Investigations Division continue to give their all in keeping our residents safe,” stated Sheriff Dougherty. “Regardless of the danger, they always step up and protect the innocent, putting their own lives in risk without hesitation. They also continue to be proactive even when New York State laws cater to the criminals and make public safety jobs even more difficult and even more dangerous. Please join me in recognizing them for their exceptional service.”
