A Message From The Sheriff
As Sheriff of Oneida County, I would like to welcome you to the Oneida County Sheriff's website. It is my hope you will discover that this site contains useful information about the Sheriff’s office, and another way to receive feedback from people like you. I will be working to update our web page with information that all members of the community should find useful and important. My goal is to solicit input from our citizens and keep them knowledgeable of the many programs and services of the Sheriff’s Office.
The Sheriff is a constitutional officer and the chief law enforcement officer in the County. The Sheriff is responsible for keeping the peace within Oneida County.
The Office of Sheriff is truly a broad based organization. There are several statutory responsibilities of a Sheriff that encompass a wide range of services. The Law Enforcement Patrol and Jail Operations are the two most commonly associated with any Sheriff’s Office. Some of the other services include; Serving Civil Process, Court Security, Transportation of Inmates, Recreational Safety Patrol, Special Response Team (SRT), Hazmat/Bomb Disposal Unit, Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) programs, School Liaison Program, Crime Prevention, Drug Enforcement and Criminal Investigation, and Public Education may be all lesser known by the general public but just as vital.
For those of you that are interested in employment with the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, we welcome you to this site as well. Not only is the agency a great place to work, but also Oneida County is a great place to live and raise a family. This site will only give you a glimpse and we’d encourage you to thoroughly research who we are and what we stand for. We are sure you’ll be impressed.
