Sheriff’s Office Announces “Daily Livestream” In An Effort To Keep The Community Informed & Busy During Their Time At Home

Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol is announcing that the Sheriff’s Office Community Affairs Unit will be hosting a “Sheriff’s Daily Livestream” segment in an effort to keep a constant and positive relationship with the community that we serve. This segment will run daily from 10:00am – 10:30am Monday through Friday until further notice and will feature various types of safety presentations along with a portion of time set aside where members of the Sheriff’s Office will read books for some of the younger children.

The Community Affairs Unit is looking for the community’s feedback on this new way of temporarily communicating with the people and we encourage viewers to ask questions via email and they will then be answered at the next daily segment. Questions, comments, and feedback on the new Sheriff’s Daily Livestream segments can be emailed .

So far during this time when everyone is needed to stay put at home, the Sheriff’s Office Community Affairs Unit has launched several new and very popular programs & services including the daily, early morning reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance from a different school in Oneida County, a regular and updated list of restaurants in Oneida County that offer take outs & delivery, a Home Alone Safety Checklist for Kids, and a regularly updated list of grocery stores that offer special Senior Shopping Hours.

The Sheriff’s Office also recently announced a major upgrade to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office mobile app, offering broadcasts and rebroadcasts of Center for Disease Control (CDC) COVID-19 alerts. The app and the upgrade are available free for Android and Apple. The upgraded app is an innovative response to help the public and local businesses stay current on COVID-19 alerts and news.

• The new COVID-19 feature is on the app menu.

• To get the CDC COVID-19 alerts, go to Settings, then Notifications to register for the CDC Alerts.

“The upgraded app will help the public receive fast breaking, credible news and information from the CDC,” said Sheriff Maciol. “I encourage you to share the app with your family, friends, and neighbors so they too can receive our alerts and news.”
