Oneida County Deputy Sheriff Completes Statewide Civil Training Program

Fifty-six deputy sheriffs and civilian staff from sheriff’s offices around the state attended the New York State Sheriffs' Institute Civil School held recently in Albany, including Oneida County Sheriff’s Deputy Edmund Wiatr. This was the second week in a two week-long, day training program offered each year by the Sheriffs' Institute.

All Sheriffs have civil law enforcement functions including the service of process and enforcement of judgments and other court orders and mandates. The school provides participants with training in the latest advances in civil law enforcement and a forum to discuss current civil law enforcement issues and share best practices.

The Sheriffs’ Institute is a not-for-profit corporation formed in 1979 to advance criminal justice education, prevent juvenile delinquency, and support victims of crime and their families.

If you’d like more information about the Civil Division of the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office or if you may be in need of their assistance, please contact Lieutenant Craig Critelli at 315-798-5862
