Several Oneida County Sheriff’s Office Members Complete Statewide Corrections Training Program

One Hundred and Thirty Eight correction administrators from nearly every county in New York attended the New York State Sheriffs' Association annual Jail Administrators’ Training Conference held recently in Saratoga Springs, including Chief Deputy Mark Kinderman, Captain Randy Pflieger, Captain Clayton Smith, and Lieutenant Timothy Wilcox.

Sheriffs operate county jails and have the responsibility to safely keep and maintain thousands of incarcerated individuals committed to jail by our courts. The conference offered speakers on leadership development, medical issues in county jails, recent legal issues, re-entry into the community, recent legislation and many more topics. Administrators were also able to talk with 37 companies which exhibited their latest equipment, services and software for county jails. The annual conference always provides participants with a forum to discuss current issues in corrections and to share best practices.

The Sheriffs’ Association is a not-for-profit corporation formed in 1934 to advance criminal justice education and to enhance and protect the Office of Sheriff in New York State.
