Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O'Flynn
I am proud to serve as President of the New York State Sheriffs’ Association. This organization has been in existence for nearly 80 years in order to help Sheriffs’ who serve the public. We work in a collaborative effort with other police agencies to improve prevention and detection of crime and other public safety issues. We also strive to educate Sheriffs’ and their staff members so the public better understands the services that we provide.
Sheriff’s from across the state will continue to work with legislative leaders when it comes to our position on legislation or serious issues facing our members.
We welcome citizen input to improve the level of communication between Sheriffs’ and our citizens. All Sheriffs’ have challenges unique to their communities, and we work collectively to confront and improve those circumstances.
We have the privilege of serving a diverse population. Whether it’s the men and women who wear the various uniforms of law enforcement; the children who attend our schools, the parents who give guidance to those children, or the elderly who enjoy their senior years in our communities, the safety of all of our citizens is of the upmost importance.
