Sheriff’s Office releases 2015 annual report

CHENANGO COUNTY – The Chenango County Sheriff’s Communications division fielded more than 105,000 emergency and non-emergency calls in 2015, more than 16,000 of which were handled by the Sheriff’s Law Enforcement division, according to the department’s annual report.

The 2015 report was presented to the county Board of Supervisors this month. While the 104-page document highlights some of the challenges faced by the department, including escalating costs of medical and overtime expenses and a rapid turnover of personnel in the correctional facility, it also stresses the successes of the department which Sheriff Ernest Cutting said continues to effectively operate within its $8 million budget.
