LIVINGSTON COUNTY — Livingston County Sheriff John York has completed his final day after 24 years of serving as the County Sheriff.
Sheriff York’s retirement symbolizes the end of an era for the County.
“Words cannot express the honor and pride I have always felt being a part of this agency, both as an employee and as the Sheriff of Livingston County,” stated the Sheriff in a letter addressed to the department. “I’ve traveled the state and country, seen Sheriffs services provided by many organizations across America and no where have I found better service than that which is provided by the men and women of the Livingston County Sheriffs Office.”
Under Sheriff York’s leadership the department is one of 25 Sheriff’s Offices and one of 123 police agencies in New York State to have met or exceeded the 130 professional standards required for accredited agency status by the New York State Law Enforcement Accreditation Program.
“As I leave this office, I leave with sadness but age waits for no one. I take great pride in knowing I was part of an agency that I would describe, as many other have, as the best Sheriff’s Office in America,” stated Sheriff York.
