Sheriff's Dept. earns accreditation

NORWICH – The director of the New York State Sheriff’s Association was on hand Monday at the Chenango County Board of Supervisors’ monthly gathering to reward the county’s public safety sector with a certificate of accreditation.



The recognition is given to public safety agencies that meet and exceed the state’s standards of excellence and is an affirmation of the respect that the local agency enjoys across the state.

“Why do we bother with accreditation?” Peter R.
