Chairman James Merrick
Members of the Board of Supervisors
County Administrator Dominic Mazza

I am honored to present the 2007 Annual Report on behalf of the men and women of the
Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.

As evident by content, this agency continues to meet the overwhelming demands of public
safety services and demonstrates the confidence and respect that our community has for this
office and its service providers.

Hopefully, this year will witness groundbreaking of the long needed Livingston County Jail. It is
only with your support and that of the public that such costly projects are brought to fruition
meeting the needs of this agency and the people of this county. This support does not go
unrecognized by staff and the correctional community.

Although the demands on the agency continue to grow with issues such as Homeland Security
and crime moving from the inner city to the suburban and rural areas, we continue to meet
these challenges by working closely with other law enforcement agencies serving this county,
the District Attorney’s Office and the many department heads who work with this agency to
help us provide the services required.

Although this report is detailed and informative, it may open many questions for you as
members of the Board and should you or any member of our community have questions
regarding this report or this agency’s operation, they may be directed to me or any member of
this agency at any time.

With the continued support of the Board of Supervisors, the County Administrator and
department heads, we will continue to meet the increasing demands of public safety
throughout Livingston County.

On behalf of the men and women of this agency, I want to thank you as Chairman, the entire
Board, the County Administrator, the County Attorney and staff for your continued support of
public safety issues facing our community.

A Message from the Sheriff

Although the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office has seen many trying and difficult cases and
years, most cases have been brought to satisfactory resolve through the efforts, commitment and
dedication of the men and women of the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office. This could not and
would not be accomplished without the support from the Livingston County Board of Supervisors,
the County Administrator, the many department heads and our fellow law enforcement
community as well as the District Attorney’s Office who all work collectively to make Livingston
County a better and safer place in which to live.

We continue to face many challenges including balancing budgets, meeting demands for
services, shrinking state and federal funding, yet we continue to find ways of accomplishing our
goals and objectives while placing the least burden possible on the taxpayers of this County.

One of the major obligations and responsibilities of every Sheriff is the care and custody of
inmates in the county jail. In 2007, nearly 1100 inmates were housed at the Livingston County
Jail, with many additional housed at the Monroe County Jail. While the burden continues on
finding space to house inmates, the need for a new jail is past the point of need and becoming a
reality for the agency and staff to see light at the end of the tunnel, with the beginning of
construction of a new facility to begin in 2008, which will relieve the tremendous pressure put on
both the staff and inmates at the current county jail.

We will continue to utilize unique inmate housing efforts with alternative programs such as day
reporting, weekend work release programs, community service and many service programs
provided to inmates to continue to reduce the recidivism rate of inmates at the county jail and
hopefully provide an incentive for inmates to become productive members of our community
versus a burden on our criminal justice system.

Livingston County Sheriff’s Office remains a fully accredited and re-accredited agency in every
division; the first Sheriff’s Office in the State of New York to ever achieve this monumental
accomplishment and still today remains only 1 of 2 to achieve this goal.

Technology continues to be a major focus of staff and we are indebted to the Information and
Technology Services Department for the County in helping us bring the most state-of-the-art to
the Office of Sheriff and the many divisions in the Sheriff’s Office providing the best in public
safety services to all Livingston County Police agencies, through the 911 Center, and the data
collection of the County Information and Technology Services Department.

I am honored to serve in the capacity as Sheriff in this great county with some of the most
dedicated men and women providing the best in Public Safety services to all living and traveling
through this county. We open our doors to anyone wishing to access this agency and to discuss
the contents of our annual report which appears both in written format publication and appears
on our web-site at the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office for review by our community at .

                                                   Mission Statement

The principal mission of the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office is to preserve the rights of citizens
and reduce fear in the community through prevention of crime, protection of persons, property
and the maintenance of order in public places and anticipate and respond to events that threaten
public order and the protection of life and property.

It is essential all members remember that in the execution of their duties they act not for
themselves, but for the good of the public. They shall respect and protect the rights of individuals
and perform their services with honesty, zeal, courage, discretion , fidelity and sound judgment.

Deputies must seek and preserve public confidence by demonstrating impartial service to law
and by offering service and trust to all members of the public.

It is the expressed policy of this Department that Deputies will use force only when the exercise
of persuasion, advice and warning is found to be insufficient to obtain public cooperation to an
extent necessary to secure observance of law or to restore order and to use only the minimum
degree of physical force which is necessary upon any particular occasion for achieving a police

                                                              Code of ethics

As a law enforcement officer, my fundamental duty is to serve mankind; to safeguard lives and
property; to protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation
and the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the Constitutional rights of all men
to liberty, equality and justice.

I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all; maintain courageous calm in the face of
danger; scorn or ridicule; develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of
others. I will be honest in thought and deed in both my personal and official life. I will be
exemplary in obeying the laws of the land and the regulations of my department. Whatever I see
or hear of a confidential nature that is confided to me in my official capacity, will be kept ever
secret unless necessary in the performance of my duty.

I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities or friendships to
influence my decisions. With no compromise for crime and with relentless prosecution of
criminals, I will enforce the law courteously and appropriately without fear or favor, malice or ill
will, never employing unnecessary force or violence and never accepting gratuities.

I recognize the badge of my office as a symbol of public faith, and I accept it as a public trust to
be held so long as I am true to the ethics of the police service. I will constantly strive to achieve
these objectives and ideals, dedicating myself before God to my chosen profession . . . law

2007 Highlights in Review

The New York State Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (NYSLEAP) conducted an on-site assessment of
the Sheriff’s Office in October and unanimously voted to grant re-accreditation status following a favorable
review by three assessors. Initial accreditation was awarded in 1997, with re-accreditations occurring in 2002
and 2007.

Mandated annual compliance reports were submitted and approved for Police Services, Civil,
Communications, Corrections and Court Security accreditations.

In 2007, 15 Policies and Procedures were amended, 4 new policies and procedures were added to the Manual
of Rules and Regulations and 3 Administrative Memorandums were issued.

The Sheriff’s Office accepted 5 student interns from three area colleges who interned a total of 908 hours in
2007. Six B.O.C.E.S. students participated in brief intern or shadow programs. College interns are provided an
exposure to the workings of the various divisions within the Sheriff’s Office and are assigned to projects within
one or more divisions.

In-service training in 2007, addressed a minimum of 21 hours of training for each person assigned to police
services, corrections, court security and communications. Police services personnel, including Civil, recorded
5,168 hours of training, averaging 82.03 hours per person. Corrections personnel trained a total of 1,522 hours,
an average of 39.99 hours per person. Court Security personnel trained 327 hours, averaging 54.5 hours per
person. Communications personnel trained 1,061 hours, an average of 57.53 hours per person. Each division
exceeded minimal accreditation requirements.

In 2007, the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office is one of 123 of 550 law enforcement agencies and one of 25 of
58 Sheriff’s Offices in New York State to be accredited by the New York State Law Enforcement Program. It is
one of 19 Sheriff’s Offices to have accredited Corrections, one of 7 Sheriff’s Offices with Civil accreditation,
one of 9 and the first in the state to have an accredited 911 Center and one of 4 and the first to have Court
Security accreditation.

employee, Dispatcher Andrew Eve, succumbed to illness. Ten part-time personnel resigned their positions or
were appointed full-time. Nine full-time employees were appointed to positions with Road Patrol, Corrections,
Communications and in civilian capacities. Fourteen part-time personnel were hired and assigned to the
various divisions comprising the Sheriff’s Office.

Full and part-time personnel assigned to Road Patrol, Investigation, Corrections and Communications
maintained compliance with the National Incident Management System, by completing NIMS IS-100 and 700
coursework. NIMS compliance, mandated by the United States Department of Homeland Security, is pre-
requisite to making application for Federal grant funds.

The back-up 911 Center located in the Emergency Management Services Building at Hampton’s Corners was
completed in 2007 and is fully operational and up and running, providing back-up for the center at 4 Court
Street and additional dispatch console positions in event of an emergency situation.

           A Message from the Undersheriff

2007 has proved to be a challenging year for the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office. Working in
close concert with the Livingston County Health Department, the Sheriff’s Office has assisted in
developing a protocol that will address impending pandemic flu concerns. Table-top and
Command Post Exercises have taken place with County Government and County Departments
to assure continuity in response to emergency situations with an Emergency Operations Center
and protocol in accordance with the Livingston County Comprehensive Emergency Management

Additionally, the Sheriff’s Office has developed protocols to address chemical, biological and
radiological threats, infectious animal disease, infectious plant disease and terrorist-related
scenarios from a law enforcement response perspective. Agency personnel have attended
seminars and workshops presented by the New York State Office of Homeland Security
designed to alert, inform and prepare law enforcement responders to respond to emergency
situations that result from acts of terrorism in a manner most beneficial to the public.

The Sheriff’s Office has made application and received numerous grants over the past three
years that provide equipment and technologies to better prepare the agency to respond
effectively to situations created by terrorists or are the result of terrorist activity. In cooperation
with Livingston County Emergency Management Services, duplication of equipment has been
avoided while needed technologies and equipment procured by each agency are at the disposal
of the other in event of need.

The challenge in the future is to remain on the cutting edge of emergency service and law
enforcement technology and response training in order to provide the people of Livingston
County with a high degree of security and confidence that local government and local service
providers will respond in the best interest of the public.

Goals and Objectives 2008

The Sheriff’s Office will continue to provide the residents and visitors to Livingston County with
the most professional, competent and highly trained and equipped police, corrections, civil, court
security and communications services possible. To achieve this goal, the Office of Sheriff will be
responsible and accountable for use of personnel resources, equipment and funding. Grant
funding will be proactively sought to aid in providing services at the lowest cost to taxpayers.

The Sheriff’s Office will maintain accredited agency status in police services, corrections, civil,
communications and court security in 2008. Annual compliance reports will be submitted in a
timely manner and review of a total of 433 written policies and procedures addressing 526
professional standards will be an on-going commitment by the Office of Sheriff.

As in past years, traffic enforcement will remain a priority goal and objective. Utilizing overtime
grant funding and scheduled patrol activity, every effort and resource will be expended to reduce
traffic infractions, crashes and drinking drivers. Dedicated roving patrols, license plate reader,
speed trailer and community policing initiatives to educate the public will be employed to enforce
vehicle and traffic laws.

Construction of the new Livingston County Jail is anticipated to begin in the Fall of 2008, to be
located behind the present facility. Designed to house approximately 200 inmates, completion of
this project will address chronic and acute overcrowding in the present facility.

                                                                                  Road Patrol
The Road Patrol Division, supervised by Major James Szczesniak, consists of 5 Sergeants, 28 full-time
Deputies and 18 part-time Deputies, all certified as Police Officers by Municipal Police Training Council
(MPTC). The primary responsibility of the Road Patrol is to enforce New York State Vehicle and Traffic
Laws, New York Penal Law, other state and local laws. Responding to complaints from the public, the
Road Patrol also conducts preliminary investigation at motor vehicle crash scenes and crime scenes
throughout the 640 square miles comprising Livingston County.

Road Patrol Deputies also serve on specialized units that include an Emergency Response Team, two K9
teams, three S.T.O.P.-D.W.I. units, five Mounted Patrol Teams, two School Resource Officers, Marine
Patrol, Campus Security at the County complex on Murray Hill, Underwater Dive and Recovery Team,
Community Policing, Training Unit and Firearms Training Unit.

 Grant funding from the New York State Office of Homeland Security was used to purchase a 36’ motor home which was
 stripped of its living accommodations and replaced with work spaces to convert the motor home into a mobile command
 center for response to crime scenes, drownings, and disasters. Funding from the same grant was used to upgrade an
 Emergency Response Vehicle (ERT) donated to the Sheriff’s Office by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. The 36’ Mobile
 Command Center replaced an aged towed trailer and the ERT vehicle replaced an old LATS bus. Funding from a second
 grant from New York State Office of Homeland Security will provide furnishings, computers, screens, radios and response
 equipment for the Mobile Command Center.

Retirements in 2007, included Sergeant Frederick Ingalls and Deputy Theodore Miskell. Part-time Deputy
Robert Keeley resigned his position. Deputies Matthew Orman and Martin C. Herkimer were appointed to
full-time patrol positions and Deputy Christopher Beach was placed in a part-time position. Deputies
Orman, Herkimer and Beach completed 160 hours of supervised field training prior to assuming patrol

In 2007, police services personnel completed 5,168 hours of training, averaging 82.03 hours per person.
In-service training included mandatory annual firearms qualification, Article 35 review and Airborne/Blood
borne/Communicable Disease training. Specialized units trained a total of 1,744 hours in 2007.

                                                       Page 7
Road Patrol
In 2007, the Road Patrol fleet was upgraded with the purchase of 11 marked Tahoe 4WD vehicles and 2
marked Ford Crown Victoria police vehicles. Additionally, an unmarked Tahoe and Chevrolet Impala were
acquired. Acquisition of these vehicles replenished the fleet with new vehicles replacing aged, high
mileage units.

Following a nation-wide law enforcement trend to provide police personnel with firepower that matches or
exceeds that of criminal elements, address officer safety and provide better response to terrorist and
criminal activity, the Sheriff’s Office procured 10 Colt M4 caliber 5.56 mm rifles for the Emergency
Response Team and 10 AR15 caliber 5.56 mm carbines to be placed in marked patrol vehicles. These
rifles were acquired at no cost by trading weapons no longer used by the Sheriff’s Office.

                                        Training Unit
The New York State Law Enforcement Program (NYSLEAP) mandates 21 hours of in-service training for
police services personnel as an accreditation requirement. The 21 hours of in-service training must
include annual firearms qualification, review of New York State Penal Law Article 35 (Use of Force, Use of
Deadly Force), Legal Updates and review of airborne/blood borne/ communicable diseases. To this end,
the Training Unit, supervised by Sergeant Randall Morris prepared an in-service training schedule that
addressed mandatory training, instruction designed to hone existing law enforcement skills, keeping
personnel up-to-date with changing techniques and trends, provide training for specialized units and
maintain various certification requirements.

The Road Patrol Training schedule in 2007, featured 23 in-service training sessions in the Briefing Room
taught by the agency’s 17 certificated General Topics Instructors, 4 Firearms Instructors and Defensive
Tactics Instructor, other law enforcement agencies and outside sources. The Training Schedule evolved
from two meetings that included Major Szczesniak, Sergeant Morris and agency core instructors who
determined required subject matter, the instructor and date and time of the instruction. In-service training
sessions were open to local and State police law enforcement agencies. Expanded topics were
scheduled for 2-four hour blocks at York Central School and the Caledonia Sub-station.

All in-service classes require certified instructors, a detailed lesson plan or plan of instruction approved by
Sergeant Morris and a sign-in sheet documenting attendees. In-service hours accrued by each Deputy or
Investigator are recorded in the Accreditation Office for inclusion in accreditation standard files and
individual training files. In 2007, police services personnel completed 5,168 hours of training, far
exceeding minimum NYSLEAP training requirements.

The primary goal and objective of the Training Unit in 2008 will be to maintain the high level of in-service
training provided in previous years while satisfying mandated NYSLEAP training requirements. Careful
consideration will be given to incorporating new concepts, training techniques, technology advancements
and relevant subject matter into the training schedule.

Due to the success of the 2 –four hour blocks training utilized in 2007, the Training Unit will endeavor to
provide 2-four hour blocks of training once each month in 2008, at the Caledonia Sub-station.

                                   Firearms Training
The Firearms Training Unit, consists of Sergeant Robin Maloney (Supervisor), Investigator Gerald Kane,
and Deputies Michael Duby and Gene Chichester, all certified by Municipal Police Training Council as
Firearms Instructors. Additionally, Unit members are trained armorers, using armorer skills to repair
agency firearms. The Firearms Unit provides firearms familiarization, training and qualification to new
personnel, provides annual qualification for all personnel and any police agency in Livingston County
wishing to qualify personnel with the Sheriff’s Office and provides a tactical combat shooting scenario in
the Fall. In 2007, personnel from the Nunda, Caledonia and Dansville Police Departments qualified with

                                                  Page 8
                                                                          Road Patrol
the Sheriff’s Office.

Qualification and tactical training is provided personnel on the Sig Sauer P220 ST, caliber .45 service
pistol and the Remington Model 870 12 gauge pump-action shotgun. In 2008, police services will be
required to complete a 16 hour course and qualify with the Colt Model AR-15 caliber .223 (5.56mm)
carbine. In February, 2007, 88 Sheriff’s Office personnel and 18 police officers from Dansville, Caledonia
and Nunda successfully completed annual qualification with service pistol and shotgun. In September, 97
law enforcement officers completed combat and tactical training. Two Firearms Instructors completed
training in August, on the AR-15 carbines, receiving certification as Patrol Rifle Instructors.
Goals and objectives for 2008, include providing the best firearms training possible to Sheriff’s Office
personnel and sister agencies in the County. Liability issues involving police use of firearms looms large
in the United States today. To address this concern, the Firearms Training Unit will stay abreast of
current trends and issues involving firearms and firearms training and tactics.

For years, the Firearms Training Unit has stressed the importance of having a training facility that
specifically addresses and meets the needs of law enforcement. The Sheriff’s Office presently uses the
Mt. Morris Sportsmen’s Club and is grateful to the Club for making their facilities available for training and
qualification. Because the Club is heavily used by its membership and the New York State Department of
Corrections, it is becoming increasingly difficult for the Sheriff’s Office to book training and qualification
weeks, making provision of a police training range an important priority for consideration by the County.

                                 Community Policing
The concept of Community Policing, a Deputy or Deputies specifically assigned to working with the people
of Livingston County to identify issues of concern and then mutually work to resolve those issues, first
appeared in the mid-1990’s, encouraged and supported with federal Community Oriented Policing
Program (COPPS) grant funding. Initially, a three person Unit, the Community Policing Unit today
consists of Deputy Phyllis Applin, assigned to represent the Sheriff’s Office with individuals, schools,
organizations and businesses throughout the County.

In 2007, Community Policing activities included interfacing with Neighborhood Watch Programs, Car Seat
Checks, facility tours and group presentations. Fifty-six presentations were provided to a wide range of
audiences that ranged from young children to senior citizens covering a variety of topics addressing
career choices, self-defense, personal safety, sexual harassment, internet safety and schemes to defraud.

Using Child Safety Seat grant funding provided by the Governor’s Traffic Safety Council, Deputies Phyllis
Applin, Brad Schneider, Gene Chichester and Cory Noto conducted 18 car seat checks at designated
sites and by appointment for persons not able to attend a scheduled check event. 192 car seats were
examined and 89 seats found to be not serviceable, were replaced with a new child safety seat provided
with grant funds at nor cost to the recipient.

The KID ID Program, initiated in 1995 by Sheriff York and Major Ray Ellis in conjunction with the
Livingston Masonic District, fingerprinted, provided a biteplate and a DNA sample for more than 1,000
kindergarten students and children new to Livingston County public, private and parochial schools in
2007. Designed to provide identity markers in event of disappearance or abduction, the program includes
more than 24,000 students to date. The free Cell Phone Program continued to provide reconditioned cell
phones capable only of calling 911 at no charge to requesting eligible citizens. Three F.A.I.R.
presentations were provided owners and employees of bars and restaurants on responsibilities
associated with serving alcoholic beverages to the public. Gunlocks were once again made available to
the public under Project Childsafe.

Facility tours proved to be popular with the public in 2007, with 19 tours escorted through the Sheriff’s
Office.    Community services providers and organizations, schools and scouting groups toured
Administration, Jail, Court Security and 911 facilities. Fifty-six presentations covering a wide range of
subjects that included topics of interest to children, security, defensive tactics , sexual harassment,
internet safety and schemes to defraud, were made available to a variety of groups. In 2007, Deputy
Applin continued to provide support, advice and instruction to TRIAD, an organization that meets monthly
at the Sheriff’s Office. Consisting of representative of Senior Citizen groups from throughout the County,
TRIAD representatives discuss and receive instruction on items of interest to Seniors, taking this
information back to their groups for their consideration and edification. A total of 217 hours was logged for
Community Policing events and activities in 2007.

The primary goal of Community Policing in 2008 is to maintain a
flow of communication with the public, work toward resolving issues
of concern and make Livingston County a safe place to live and
raise a family. Public safety announcements, public presentations,
brochures, pamphlets and direct contact with the public will be
utilized to disseminate information that will alert and educate people
on a wide range of topics and concerns.

2008, will witness inclusion of digital cards containing information
about children as an adjunct to the KID ID Program. In a
cooperative venture with the Livingston County District Attorney’s

Office this program will be funded with Operation Safe Child grant monies. Plans are underway to develop

The Sheriff’s Marine Patrol is staffed by 7 part-time Deputies on Conesus Lake from Memorial Day
through Labor Day each year. Sergeant William Smith and Deputies Albert Brinkerhoff, James Clark,
Joseph Barkan, Donald Richards, Raymond Slattery and Clark Young enforce New York State Laws,
including Navigation Law, to make Conesus Lake a safer place for Lake residents to live and vacation.
The Marine Patrol operates two 21 foot patrol vessels and a Personal Water Craft (PWC) in their patrol
and enforcement capacity. The vessels are moored at Sand Point and Long Point Sub-stations.

In 2007, more than 2,000 hours were logged patrolling Conesus Lake. 175 complaints were addressed,
55 stranded or disabled vessels were assisted, 25 reports were taken involving lost or stolen property and
a multitude of issues to include larcenies, domestics, property damage and criminal mischiefs were
addressed. Assists were rendered EMS and Fire responders and the Sheriff’s Road Patrol. 19
Navigation summonses were issued including one Boating While Intoxicated (BWI) arrest. Two Driving
While Intoxicated (DWI) arrests were affected by Marine Patrol Deputies. Persons were additionally cited
for no personal floatation device, speeding and reckless navigation.

Eight New York State Safe Boating classes were conducted by the Marine Patrol, graduating a total of
238 students, satisfying New York State requirements that everyone who operates a PWC and everyone
under the age of 18 years operating a
boat have a Safe Boating Certificate.
Since the early 1970’s, the Marine
Patrol has instructed more than 3,300                                 Deputy Ray Slattery
persons in safe boat operation. The
New York State Department of Parks
and Recreation reimbursed the
Sheriff’s Office $38,271.00 for Marine
Patrol operations in 2007.

Goals and objectives for 2008 include
continuance of Safe Boating classes,
continued vessel inspections and BWI
patrols and continued efforts to
reduce Navigation Law violations in
order to make Conesus a safer place
for everyone to enjoy.

                           School Resource Officers
The United States Bureau of Justice Assistance Community Oriented Policing Program (COPPS) School
Resource Officer (SRO) Program provided the York, Livonia and Keshequa Central School Districts with a
School Resource Officer for the school years 2002-2003, 2003-2004 and 2004-2005 with federal grant
funding. When federal funding terminated, the York and Livonia School Districts continued with the
program from the 2005-2006 school year to present. Deputy Michael Dougherty serves the Livonia
School District and Deputy Gene Chichester the York School District.

SRO’s typically are at their respective school every day school is in session from time of student arrival to
time of departure. SRO’s frequently serve their school district evenings and weekends when school
events require their presence. School Resource Officers endeavor to provide a safe and secure campus

                                                 Page 11
Road Patrol
and environment that maximizes learning and provides for the safety of staff, students and visitors.
Following the Columbine tragedy and subsequent tragedies, such as the recent Virginia Tech shootings,
school safety is a concern for school districts, students, parents and law enforcement.

SRO’s are certified Police Officers who have received further training in Drug Resistance Awareness
Education (D.A.R.E.), School Resource Officer Certification, General Topics Instructor Certification and
Juvenile Officer Certification. SRO’s attend annual DA.R.E. Conferences and training sessions relative to
the scope of their responsibilities. The SRO aims to develop positive partnering and relationships between
the school community and law enforcement, maintain effective communications, identify and cooperatively
find solutions to problems, conduct safety audits resulting in school safety and response plans and
enforce laws when justified. They address issues that include instructional support, high-risk students,
emergency safety planning, bomb threat response and threat assessment. SRO’s maintain frequent and
often daily contact with students, parents, staff, administration and Boards of Education. They provide
classroom instruction in drug and alcohol education, Junior Achievement, violence and bullying, bicycle
safety, good character traits and law enforcement subjects. Victim Impact Panels, illustrating the tragedy
caused by drinking drivers is made available for high school 11th and 12th graders. SRO’s continually
analyze security needs of their respective school district and work closely with the Livingston County
Probation Office to address issues involving probationers and PINS referrals. Arrests typically include
Penal Law and Vehicle and Traffic Law infractions.

                                                               In 2008, the School Resource Officers
                                                               will strive to develop a more community
oriented relationship between the schools and the Sheriff’s Office, update and improve background
checks, fingerprinting and hiring of school employees and continue to assist school administrators in
addressing harassment and bullying issues.

                               Campus Security Unit
Two Deputies, Michael Duby and Joseph Granita, are assigned to patrol the Livingston County Campus
located on Murray Hill in the Village of Mt. Morris daily, Monday through Friday. Among the County
departments located at the County Campus are the Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, Social Services
and the Department of Health. These departments and other County departments attract a large number
of visitors daily to the County Campus. The Campus Security Unit is responsible for ensuring the safety
and security of residents, clients, staff and visitors to the County Campus. One additional deputy is
assigned security duty at the Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation weekdays from 5:00 to 9:00 PM.

                                                                        Road Patrol
Campus Security deputies patrol the campus in a marked patrol vehicle and a marked golf cart,
responding to all incidents that take place at the campus to include requests for assistance, motor vehicle
accidents, stand-bys for the Social Services Department and enforcement of Penal and Motor Vehicle and
Traffic Laws. In 2007, Campus Security was equipped with a computer such as those used by Road
Patrol and CID, enabling Campus Security personnel to complete field reporting, records checks, access
NYSPIN data and utilize County e-mail. The addition of this equipment makes the Campus Security Unit
more efficient and enables access to the same assets and information technologies as the Road Patrol.

The opening of the Center for Nursing in December 2005, and renovation activities in Building 1 have
increased physical security activity for the Campus Security Unit. In 2007, the following activity in
response to requests for service were recorded by the Campus Security Unit:
   Incidents                               62            Cases                                  10

   DSS Extended Hours                     108

In 2008, renovations to Building 1 are scheduled for completion. This will consolidate the entire Social
Services Department into one five story building. It is anticipated this consolidation will further increase
vehicular traffic on the County Campus and increase the number of persons present on campus. The
Campus Security Unit will continue to provide the high level of professional police presence and services
provided in past years, assuring the safety and security of everyone on Murray Hill.

             Underwater Search and Recovery Team
The Underwater Search and Recovery Team (USRT), supervised by Investigator Ronald Huff, Jr., is
manned by Investigator Gerry Kane and Deputies Rod Bennett, Randall Newton, William Sackett and
Michael Anne, all PADI certified open water divers.

In 2007, the Team trained on five
occasions for a total of 172 man-hours.
Training took place in Conesus Lake, the
Plano training pool and local quarries,
emphasizing search training, IE proper
buoyancy and wet and dry suit dives, full
face mask training, dive tables and the
wheel. USRT was activated on two
occasions in 2007. The first activation
occurred when a report was received of
sighting of a human hand in Conesus
Lake. Search of the area did not locate
any such remains; however, an area
located in marine vegetation did resemble
a human hand. The second activation of
the Team was for evidence recovery in
the outlet to Conesus Lake, the result of
information received from an outside
source.      The informant indicated a
burglary suspect may have disposed of a

                                                Page 13

handgun in the waters of the outlet and at the scene pointed out the area where the firearm was
supposedly tossed. A thorough search of the area resulted in negative results. USRT activations resulted
in 52 man-hours of operational service. Deputy Sackett presented USRT equipment and detailed search
and rescue techniques to the public at the New York State Sheriff’s Week open house at the Sheriff’s
Office in September, logging 8 hours of community presentations.

Goals and objectives for 2008 include continuing training on a bi-monthly basis as has been the practice
over the past several years. The Underwater Search and Recovery Team would like to increase the team
by one to eight members and obtain advanced training for Team members that will certify each diver in ice
diving. In 2008, USRT will participate in a multi-agency training week at the New York State Sheriff’s
Camp on Keuka Lake. The Team will repair and maintain current equipment and research and
recommend acquisition of new equipment. Efforts will be made to train with the Sheriff’s Marine Patrol in

                                             K9 unit
In 2007, the Sheriff’s K9 Unit entered into its sixth year of service. Sergeant Chad Draper and K9 Tyson
and Deputy Joseph Zambito and K9 Saige were formed and trained as K9 teams in May, 2003 with Law
Enforcement Bloc Grant funding. While both K9 teams are certified by the New York State Municipal
Police Training Council (MPTC) in patrol, tracking and handler protection, Sergeant Draper and Tyson are
MPTC certified in Narcotics Detection and Deputy Zambito and Saige are MPTC certified in Explosives
Detection. Both teams are certified by the North American Police Work Dog Association as police utility

MPTC and North American Police Work Dog Association training mandates resulted in 162 hours of
training by Sergeant Draper and Tyson and 184 hours of training by Deputy Zambito and Saige. New
York State training mandates, conducted at the Yates County Sheriff’s Office in Penn Yan, include
obedience, agility, criminal apprehension, building search, area search and handler protection. Training
takes place monthly.

In 2007, Sergeant Draper and Tyson conducted 5 K9 demonstrations as a community service activity, 12
drug searches, 6 tracks with 5 confirmed finds and logged 15 hours assistance to other law enforcement

                                               Page 14

agencies. Deputy Zambito and Saige provided 4 K9 demonstrations, conducted 2 bomb searches, 6
tracks with 3 confirmed finds and 12 hours assistance to other law enforcement agencies.

Goals and objectives in 2008 include meeting mandated training hours and subjects as in past years in
order to provide the Sheriff’s Office and local law enforcement with first class K9 services in general law
enforcement, tracking and drug and bomb detection.

                                   S.T.O.P. - D.W.I. Unit
The S.T.O. P. – D.W.I. Unit (STOP) is staffed by Deputies Joseph Breu, James Merrick and Norman Zeh.
Sergeant Chad Draper supervises the Unit. From 7:30 PM to 4:00 AM every evening and early morning,
the STOP Unit patrols Livingston County highways in search of drinking drivers. This proactive response
to prevention of tragic crashes and senseless injuries and loss of life promulgated by actions of drinking
drivers that impacts the lives of innocent crash victims concentrates on identifying, arresting and
convicting these drivers. Prevention of injuries, fatalities and property damage is the driving force behind
the STOP unit. STOP vehicles are equipped with Kustom Dual Antenna RADAR, Watch Guard digital
video and audio recording equipment and passive alco-sensor FST devices. STOP deputies are certified
Breathalyzer Operators and Drug Recognition Experts. Additionally, they are certified in Standardized
Field Sobriety and Testing.
                                                                            DWI Arrests
In September 2007, the STOP Unit placed the first Datamaster            Avon        20    Mt. Morris 6

Goal and objectives in 2008 include re-certifying Unit members as Breathalyzer Operators and training in
skills that enhance drinking driver enforcement. Primary concern, however, remains removing drinking
drivers from Livingston County highways in order to prevent drinking-driver caused fatalities, personal
injuries and property damage.

                                     Mounted Patrol
The Sheriff’s Mounted Patrol, formed and deployed in 1992, celebrated its 15th year of service to the
people of Livingston County in 2007. Supervised by Sergeant Gary Cicoria, the Mounted Patrol includes
Deputies Andrew Chanler, Patrick Lynch, Aaron Galvin and John Morgan. The Mounted Patrol is a highly
visible unit that provides a law enforcement resource utilized at special events, search and rescue
missions and community policing. Sergeant Cicoria founded the Rochester Police Department Mounted
Patrol in the 1977 and upon retirement from the RPD became a part-time Sergeant with the Sheriff’s
Office. He is nationally certified as a mounted patrol instructor and has assisted many law enforcement
agencies with organizing their units and training their officers and mounts. Sheriff’s Mounted Patrol
personnel are certified by the New York State Municipal Police Training Council, having completed a
basic and advanced mounted patrol program. Livingston Sheriff’s Mounted Patrol members purchase and
maintain their own mounts out of pocket, to include stabling, feed, tack, veterinary expenses and farrier

Mounted Patrol activities in 2007, included hosting a multi-agency training program, the heralded “Spring
Tune-up”, the first weekend of May at the Hemlock Fairgrounds. Included in this program is mounted
equitation, sensory training, crowd control, obstacles, patrol techniques and search and rescue. Twenty-
six officers and their mounts representing seven New York police agencies participated. The Mounted

                                                Page 15
Road Patrol
Patrol also sponsored the Annual Mounted Patrol Competition, a crowd favorite, at the Hemlock Fair in

In 2007, the Mounted Patrol participated in the following: Caledonia Safety Day, Nunda Wagon Train,
Genesee Valley Hunt Races, Geneseo Opening Day Hunt Parade, Caledonia Fair, Hemlock Fair,
Greenway Dedication, Greenway Patrol (covering Caledonia, Fowlerville, Piffard, Cuylerville and Mt.
Morris), Geneseo Sidewalk Sale, Geneseo Concert in the Park, Geneseo Airshow, Caledonia Memorial
Day Parade, York Fireman’s Parade, York Fireman’s Parade, York Fireworks, Mt. Morris Parade, Mt.
Morris Battle of the Bands and Lakeville 4H Demonstrations.

In 2008, goals and objectives of the Mounted Patrol include maintaining and enhancing Mounted Patrol
services for Livingston County. High quality training, patrol and community service will be paramount in
2008.There will be a continuing presence on the Greenway, the multi-purpose trail that transverses
Livingston County from northern Caledonia to the southern tip of the town of Portage. Upon request and
with approval of the Sheriff, the Mounted Patrol will provide assistance to sister law enforcement agencies
at special events and concentrated police efforts in search and rescue and criminal activity.

The Spring Tune-up will be conducted at the Caledonia Fairgrounds in 2008, in order to accommodate
what is expected to be a larger attendance and provide easier access for Western New York agencies
that will be attending. The Annual Mounted Competition will continue in 2008, at the Hemlock
Fairgrounds in conjunction with the Hemlock Fair as in past years. A large group of participants is
expected in 2008.

                 Criminal investigation Division
The Sheriff’s Criminal Investigation Division (CID) investigates all major crimes, narcotics and sex
offenses, serious motor vehicle crashes that result in death or serious injury and/or property damage, acts
of terrorism and incidents of a critical nature. Headed by Major Ray Ellis, CID is staffed by Investigators
Brian Applin, Matthew Burgess, Ronald Huff, Jr., Gerald Kane, Kimberly Moran and Douglas Morsch. The
Civil Unit, supervised by Corporal Laurence Tetamore and Identification Unit, supervised by Sergeant
Christopher Smith are included in the Criminal Investigation Division.

In 2007, the CID was directly assigned 517 criminal and civil investigations. In the course of conducting
investigations, 129 adult arrests spanning 236 different criminal charges were made along with 14 juvenile
arrests covering 24 charges.

Through Law Enforcement Terrorism Technology Program (LETPP) grant funding, CID attained and
deployed a 35’ motor home, customizing the interior and exterior to transform it into a functional Mobile
Command Center. With Buffer Zone Protection Program (BZPP) funds, computers, radios, cameras and
a multitude of equipment and technologies were integrated into the Mobile Command Center to provide a
highly mobile and technologically replete response
medium for prolonged field investigations, natural
disasters and acts of terrorism. Initial use of the 4 Fatal Motor Vehicle Accidents
new vehicle was for service at special events to 37 Death Investigations
include two County Fairs, Balloon Festival and Air
Show. The balance of LETPP funding was used to 44 Sex Offenses

In 2007, Criminal Investigation Division personnel logged 779 hours of training to include AED/CPR
recertification, domestic violence training, electronic monitoring, mandated firearms qualification and
training, hostage negotiations, computer investigations and internet safety, sex offender registration,
major crime scene response, Emergency Response Team standards and Watch Guard Video
Surveillance System training. CID personnel worked in concert with area law enforcement and forensics
assets throughout the region. Interaction and networking between agencies serves to continually
improve cooperative investigations and is of great benefit to all involved.

                                         Major Cases
In the Spring of 2007, three local youths were arrested after toppling tombstones in the Oakwood
Cemetery on West Street, Nunda. The Sheriff’s Office worked diligently with the Nunda Police Department
to apprehend the youth who were charged with felony Criminal Mischief 3rd Degree and Cemetery

With ever evolving technology comes the onset of criminal activity. The Sheriff’s Office has noted an
increase in the number of identity theft complaints and fraudulent check cashing schemes. There has
been an increase in computer and telephonic pornography. Four cases of child pornography and
promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child were investigated in 2007, all resulting in arrest.
The Sheriff’s Office worked in association with the Regional Computer Forensics Lab to analyze cell
phones and computers in furtherance of prosecution of these offenders.

Tragedy struck last summer when a young Avon boy was enjoying the last days of summer vacation prior
to returning to school. The 9 year old was an experienced dirt bike and ATV operator. He was with
siblings, visiting in the Town of Caledonia, when the four wheeler he was operating slid down an
embankment trapping him in a shallow body of water. The boy’s younger brother ran and secured help,
but attempts to revive the child at the scene were futile.

A day of partying led to the death of a Dansville woman in August. Four Dansville residents decided to go
to Rochester to purchase more crack cocaine in the early morning hours of August 3rd. On their return
trip, front seat passenger Monique Stokes engaged in an argument with another occupant of the vehicle.
Stokes intentionally yanked the steering wheel, causing the car to go off the west side of Route 256 in the
Town of Geneseo, striking a tree. Back seat passenger Emily Minter died as a result of injuries. Stokes
subsequently entered a plea of guilty to the charge of manslaughter.

Criminal Investigation Division goals and objectives for 2008 include more involvement in providing in-
service training for Sheriff’s Office personnel. To date, six presentations, conducted by CID personnel,
are scheduled for 2008. Sex offenders remain a topic of concern for law enforcement and communities.
The Sheriff’s Office will continue to conduct public forums on sex offender registration so the community
can be educated on the laws governing sex offenders and offenders who reside in Livingston County
communities. CID will work with Parole, Probation, and offender treatment professionals to maintain
comprehensive management of these individuals. CID will work with other local law enforcement entities
to generate and disseminate information regarding particular crimes or trends in the furtherance of solving
a greater proportion of the crimes perpetrated in our communities. CID will endeavor to provide for a
safer community in 2008, by developing and solving a greater percentage of crimes, implementing more
comprehensive and proactive security measures and engaging the community through education and
crime prevention measures.

Juvenile Aid
The Juvenile Aid Division (JAD) specializes in youth services. Investigators Brian Applin and Gerald Kane,
assisted by Secretary Stephanie Little have primary responsibility to investigate or assist in the
investigation of any offense involving a juvenile, who may be a suspect, victim or witness to a crime.

There are a variety of needs for the youth of Livingston County. JAD may deal with children involved in a
variety of difficult situations, such as victims of abuse, family problems, school difficulties, Persons In
Need of Supervision (PINS) and criminal behavior. Juvenile Aid tries to keep youths out of the juvenile
justice system by diverting them to the appropriate referral agency to include the Department of Social
Services, Probation Department, Livingston County Youth Advocacy, Livingston County Counseling
Services, Center for Dispute Settlement and a variety of local agencies, all of whom JAD has had a long
standing relationship. The main objective is to assist youth and/or family through any means available.

In 2007, the Sheriff’s Office had contact with 1,816 youths under the age of 21, consisting of those youths,
approximately 54% male, 45% female and 1% unreported. Included were youths in the general
population, youth who are not at risk of becoming delinquent and youth who are currently involved with
the criminal justice system. This represents a slight decrease from 2006. Approximately 3% of the youth
JAD deals with are minorities. Annual statistics reveal the vast majority of juvenile contacts, 65%, are
children between the ages 16 and 20. This indicates a need for early intervention and continued work
with individual youth and their families.

Juvenile Aid provides assistance to any and all municipal police agencies upon request, often over the
telephone or through the auspices of School Resource Officers. In 2007, JAD assisted 9 area children
who attended the New York State Sheriff’s Association Summer Camp Program on Keuka Lake. Juvenile
Aid assisted Deputy Phyllis Applin, Community Policing Deputy, in processing approximately 1,000
children with fingerprints, bite plate and DNA sample as part of the KID ID Program. Additionally, JAD
provided assistance to the Sheriff’s three D.A.R.E. officers in presenting Dug and Alcohol Resistance
Education to approximately 300 kindergarten and fifth grade pupils in the Livonia, York and Keshequa
Central School Districts.

In 2007, Juvenile Aid continued to document the total number of individual cases, contacts, referrals and
dispositions, including diversions, detentions and petitions. JAD continued improving an automated
computer program in order to maintain a more accurate record of juvenile contacts to include suspects,
victims, arrests, diversions, referrals, runaways/missing juveniles and juveniles involved in domestic

Goals and objectives for 2008 include continuing to document the total number of individual contacts,
referrals, dispositions, diversions, detentions and petitions in quarterly reports to the Sheriff and the
Livingston County Youth Bureau. JAD will continue participation in youth serving committees in 2008, for
the purpose of networking with other agencies involved with youth. These committees include Youth
Assessment Committee (YAC), Sexual Abuse Task Force, Livingston County Subcommittee on Violence,
Domestic Violence Consortium, Partnership for Adult Services, New York State D.A.R.E. Officers
Association, Safe Schools Committee, Community Partnership for Kids, Livingston County Youth Board,
PINS Planning Board, Hillside Advisory Committee and Project Safe Childhood.

Juvenile Aid will provide diversion services, counseling and referrals on a county wide basis for area youth
and their families. Remaining youth will be referred to the Probation Department as juvenile delinquents
and will be handled through the Diversion Intake Program or Family Court. Diversions will include but not
be limited to Department of Social Services, Mental Health Department, Youth Assessment and Center for
Dispute Settlement. JAD will assist police agencies requesting assistance with youth under age 21,

                                                Page 19
Criminal Investigation Division
School Resource Officers and the Community Policing Deputy, to include educational group presentations
and child safety.

Juvenile Aid will utilize the Missing and Abducted Children Response Policy in 2008, a policy developed to
avert tragedy in the event a child is abducted or missing. A swift, comprehensive response increases
likelihood of the safe return of a child. Juvenile Investigators will take advantage of any and all training,
courses and seminars that relate to any aspect of juvenile investigations and will continue to investigate
and resolve as many cases as possible in 2008.

                                        Narcotics Unit
The Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division has dedicated many man-hours in enforcement of laws
pertaining to illegal narcotic sales, possession of illegal substances and use of controlled substances in
Livingston County. It is a long recognized fact that drug activity breeds a host of other property crimes
and violent crimes and leads to social decay. The Sheriff’s Office believes pursuing, arresting and
convicting the criminal who sells illegal substances assists in controlling the criminal who is driven to
                                          commit crimes for drugs.

                                           In 2007, the Sheriff’s Office once again addressed the problem
         Confiscated Drugs                 of outdoor marihuana cultivation with a large-scale eradication
                                           effort with the assistance of the New York State Police Aviation
                                           Unit. Sheriff’s personnel investigated a total of 18 rural sites in
 Heroin                 1 gram             the Towns of Avon, Caledonia, Lima, Livonia, Geneseo,
                                           Conesus, Groveland, West Sparta, Sparta, Ossian, Nunda and
 Cocaine               6 grams
                                           Portage. Six sites proved to be active, with 295 marihuana
 Crack Cocaine        18 grams             plants seized and destroyed, removing from the streets
                                           marihuana with an estimated value of more than $150,000.00.
 Marihuana            200+ lbs.            One indoor grow operation was seized in 2007. Marihuana
 Prescription Narcotics                    eradication efforts resulted in the arrest on one individual for
       (Hydrocodone, Oxycontin,            Unlicensed Growing of Cannabis.
                                          The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office worked closely with the
                                          New York State Police Community Narcotics Team (CNET) in
                                          2007, identifying and making undercover purchases from
persons trafficking illicit drugs. Undercover buys resulted in Livingston County Grand Jury indictments,
issuance of arrest and search warrants and the subsequent arrest of those selling illegal substances in
Livingston County. The primary target for narcotics enforcement is the user/dealer who sells drugs in
order to obtain drugs. User/dealers are the largest contributing factor to the flow pattern of illicit drugs into
Livingston County and commission of associated crimes to fund drug addictions.

In addition to CNET, the CID Narcotics Unit works closely with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug
Enforcement Administration, Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force, United States Customs Service,
United States Postal Service, United States Attorney General’s Office, Genesee County Local Drug Task
Force, Wyoming County Drug Task Force, Monroe County Gun Task Force, United States Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, all surrounding County Sheriff’s Offices, Rochester Police Department
Special Investigative Division and Livingston County Village Police Departments in Avon, Caledonia,
Dansville, Geneseo, Mt. Morris and Nunda. Developing inter-agency intelligence within and outside the
county has stopped some drug flow before it reaches the streets and communities of Livingston County.

In 2007, 123 new narcotics investigations were initiated by the Sheriff’s Office. 102 were closed by arrest
and 17 were closed by investigation. Four remaining cases are pending further investigation. 102 adults
were arrested on drug related charges in 2007, 30 being felony charges and 97 misdemeanors and

                                                  Page 20

violations. Two firearms were seized and $3,939.00 in U. S. Currency was seized through the U.S.
Federal Forfeiture Law.

Offenders arrested in 2007, were charged with Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance in the 3rd, 4th
and 5th degrees, Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance With Intent To Sell, Criminal
Possession of a Controlled Substance, Criminal Sale of Marihuana, Unlawful Possession of Marihuana,
Unlicensed Growing of Cannabis and Criminal Possession of a Weapon.

The Livingston County Drug Court, launched in 2005, accepted 41 offenders in 2007. Designed to
rehabilitate non-violent drug users and regenerate them into contributing citizens, Drug Court sets a high
standard for offenders. The County and offender win if the program is successful. The County realizes
an economic benefit through lessening criminal activity and avoiding the high cost of incarceration.

In 2008, the Narcotics Unit will pursue its main objective to reduce the flow of illicit narcotics into
Livingston County and thereby reduce associated crimes. Emphasis will be placed on continuing with
interagency cooperation as a means of stemming drug flow into Livingston County. Drug traffickers will
continue to be identified, investigated, arrested, prosecuted and convicted with follow-up through the civil
process, when warranted, to recover criminal assets and reimbursement of investigative money. The
Sheriff’s Office will further continue to operate its 24-hour Livingston County Drug Hot Line as a means
of acquiring anonymous information from the public.

The Narcotics Unit will continue to monitor and follow drug trends and educate the law enforcement
community and citizen population on availability and horrors associated with heroin and
methamphetamine now so prevalent in our society. Every effort will be extended to enforce recently
adopted New York State Penal Laws that address the methamphetamine threat. Studies reveal 2007,
witnessed a significant decrease in illicit drug manufacturing operations, a direct result of law
enforcement and legislatures combining efforts to stop a trend before it becomes the menace other
states have encountered.

                                        Civil Division
The Civil Office, staffed by Corporal Laurence Tetamore and Senior Account Clerk Dawn Hamsher
provides proper service and execution of all received civil process in compliance with New York State
Statutes and State Civil Laws and Rules and policy and procedure established by the Livingston County
Sheriff’s Office Civil Division Standard Operating Procedures Manual. The Civil Office serves income
executions, property executions, warrants of eviction and summonses.

2007, was a year of transition for the Civil
Division. Senior Account Ellen Smith                           Monies paid to Treasurer
retired following 16 years service in the
Civil Office. Dawn Hamsher replaced Ms.        90000

Criminal Investigation Division
Ms. Hamsher attended the New York State Sheriff’s Association (NYSSA) Phase One and Phase Two
Civil Training Schools. Corporal Tetamore and Ms. Hamsher attended a refresher seminar in Civil
procedures. In 2007, Corporal Tetamore was appointed as an assessor for Civil Accreditation by the
NYSSA, conducting mock assessment reviews for two counties in New York State. Civil Accreditation,
awarded the Sheriff’s Office in 1999, reaccredited in 2004, received favorable review of its required
Annual Compliance Report in 2007.

Docketed Civil Processes in 2007, included 517 income executions (+94), 83 evictions (+24) and 286
summonses (-13) for a total of 886 items served, an increase of 323 over the previous year.

$79,774.90 was received and turned over to the County Treasurer for docket fees, mileage fees,
poundage and levy associated with process service, an increase of $15,299.39 over that collected in

In 2008, the Civil Unit will continue to provide proper service and execution of all received Civil Process in
compliance with applicable laws and procedures.

                           Emergency Response Team
The Emergency Response team (ERT) is a highly trained team utilized when conventional police training,
tactics and equipment are not sufficient to address the situation. Supervised by Investigator Ronald Huff,
Jr., ERT consists of a two-man precision shooting team, two-man containment team, two-man chemical
munitions team and six-man entry team. Training is conducted with six-man teams and the complete
twelve-man team.

In 2007, ERT recorded a collective total of 1,862 training hours, including a two-week Basic SWAT School
in conjunction with the Finger Lakes Law Enforcement Academy and the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office
SWAT Team for five ERT personnel. Using the curriculum and methodology learned from the Monroe
County SWAT Team, Investigators Huff and Kane presented the same instruction to remaining Team
members. In June, Investigators Huff and Kane met with SWAT Commanders from across New York
State in Oriskany, where consideration is being given to developing a multi-faceted training compound
that will be available to SWAT/ERT teams from across New York State. Consideration is also being given
the adoption of standardized SWAT/ERT training throughout the State of New York. A committee has
been formed to study this concept. ERT conducted 4 hours of community services presentations in 2007.

                                                 Page 22
                Criminal Investigation Division
In June 2007, Colt M-4 rifles with Eotech sighting systems were issued to ERT personnel who were
trained and qualified with these new weapons acquisitions. In July, ERT participated in a multi-agency
rescue/barricaded subject, training scenario at Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, with the Monroe
County SWAT Team. In September, ERT trained for one week with the Monroe County Team at Fort
Drum, training with firearms, building entries, noise and light distraction devices, discrimination
sequences, live fire shoot house exercises, team movements, multi-agency cooperation, Simunitions,
precision shooter operations and hostage rescue.

Team members are trained with the Sig-Sauer Model P220 ST cal. .45 ACP pistol, UMP cal. .45 ACP
sub-machine gun, Colt Model M-4 cal; .223 (5.56 mm) rifle, Remington Model 870 12 gauge shotgun, 37
mm gas launching guns and X26 Taser. Training takes place on team movement, obstacle course, entry
drills, communications, vehicle assaults, stairwell clearing, clearing sequence, descrimination sequence,
Millennium P3 System, Night Vision System, woodland operations, gas mask, close quarter battle (2, 4
and 6 man) drill, hostage rescue, operations planning, scouting, officer down drills and Simunitions. ERT
was utilized on one occasion in 2007. A narcotics investigation was conducted in Nunda, with several
subjects identified as selling crack cocaine in the Village. The sales were being conducted out of both
sides of a residential duplex. Search warrants were obtained and given to ERT for service. Due to the
criminal history and demeanor of the suspects, possibility of weapons and presence of children, ERT
formulated an operational plan to address the situation. The search warrant was served without incident
despite the presence of 3 children and a total of 7 persons were placed in custody. Three individuals
were subsequently arrested and charged with felony sale of crack cocaine.

                                               Page 23
Criminal Investigation Division
In September, the ERT acquired a new vehicle designed and constructed for Emergency Response Team
operations. The new vehicle will ensure ability to respond and function more efficiently at an emergency

Goals and objectives for 2008 include continuing the relationship developed with the Monroe County
SWAT Team and developing relationships with other area Teams that will enhance training and
operations planning skills. It is hoped a training week at Ft. Drum, similar to the 2007, training week can
be offered in 2008. ERT would like to host an advanced ERT course for the entire Team in 2008, in order
to hone skills and tactics and remain current with contemporary ERT strategies.

                               Identification Division
The Identification Unit (ID) supports every element of the Sheriff’s Office with collection and preservation
of evidence. Sergeant Christopher Smith and Deputies Kevin Geer and Bryan Mann are trained in
identification and forensic techniques and specialties to include accident investigation and reconstruction,
crime and accident scene evidence recovery and evidentiary photography. Secretary Patty Avery assists
in the ID office. Identification Unit personnel respond to all major crime scenes and motor vehicle crashes
and other accidents that result in death, serious injury and serious property damage. The ID Unit provides
fingerprinting and photography services to the public for Sheriff ID Cards, pistol permits and criminal
history checks for job applications.

In 2007, the ID Unit assisted with a variety of incidents and cases throughout the year. Of note was the
fatal hit and run fatality on I-390 in October, involving a SUNY Geneseo student who was struck by three
vehicles. Conducting the investigation with little initial information, the ID Unit assisted Investigators by
collecting forensic evidence at the scene and ultimately utilizing that evidence to positively identify three
vehicles involved in the tragedy. Six fatal accidents and 93 serious motor vehicle crashes were
investigated by ID personnel in 2007. Additionally, there were 16 death investigations and 218 criminal
investigations attended to by the ID Unit. 6,621 photographs were taken and logged into evidence in

Two Road Patrol Deputies, Deputy Norman Zeh and Deputy Casey McLaughlin attended basic accident
investigation training in 2007. The addition of two trained accident investigators will greatly aid the ID
Unit. Evidentiary gathering and recording was greatly enhanced with the acquisition of a Sony
professional digital camera and accessories in 2007.

In 2008, the Identification Unit will endeavor to provide the various divisions of the Sheriff’s Office with the
high level of assistance and support rendered in the past. ID personnel will take advantage of all training
opportunities that better enhance the support and skills of the Unit.

                                                          Records Division
The Records Division is responsible for both collecting and disseminating all reports and records
produced by the Sheriff’s Office. Supervised by Brenda Smith, the Records Division is staffed by Pam
Rychlicki, Stephanie Little, Peggy Woodruff and Amy DeGraff. Records are maintained by the Records
Division using New World Systems Records Management Software for Sheriff’s Office Incident Reports,
Case Reports, Arrest Reports, Domestic Incident Reports, Accident Reports, Uniform Traffic Tickets and
other documents created in the normal course of business. The Records Division completes local
background checks, Brady Bill checks and gathers information for the general public, attorneys, insurance
companies, military recruiters, employers, government agencies and other law enforcement agencies.
The Records Division provides photo identifications for multiple Livingston County, Village and Town
agencies, Sheriff’s ID cards for the public and permanent pistol permit cards for individuals requesting
such a card. Records has maintained Incident Based Reporting (IBR) certification, equivalent to the
accreditation awarded other Divisions within the Sheriff’s Office, since 2002.

In 2007, Records logged 47 juvenile (age 15 and under) arrests/referrals. 1,518 Motor Vehicle Accidents
(309 injuries, 4 deaths), 5,973 Uniform Traffic Tickets, 19 Navigation Law Tickets, 35 Transportation Law
Tickets, 35 Parking Tickets, 473 Domestic Incident Reports and 190 Driving While Intoxicated arrests, all
manually entered into the Records Management System. In 2005, the Records Division began scanning
original Motor Vehicle Accident Reports (MV- 104A) into the Records Management System, thus
providing the ability to print the original MV-104A using the Records Management System by name,
accident number or case number.

A major goal in 2008, along with Communications and Road Patrol, is to continue involvement with the
New World Systems Mobile Advisory Board to help direct software enhancements and production to best
meet the needs of the law enforcement community. As the number of Uniform Traffic Tickets issued
increases on the TraCS System, Records Division will request the New World System TraCS Tickets &
Accident Interface which will seamlessly enter the ticket and accidents created in TraCS into the New
World Records Management System, eliminating the requirement to manually enter them into the system.

In 2007, the Records Division recorded 22,479 incidents, 3,357 of which were turned into cases:

Corrections Division
The Corrections Division staffs and operates the Livingston County Jail. The Jail Administration consists
of Major James Rose and Sergeant Jack Conklin who are designated Superintendent and Deputy
Superintendent of the Livingston County Jail. Shift Supervisors are Corporals Donald Lubanski, Jamie
Kelley and Rodney Schirmer. The Corrections staff consists of 25 full-time and 14 part-time Corrections
Officers. Dr. Aguirre is the Jail Physician and Kathy Link, RN, the Jail Nurse. Two full-time civilian cooks,
Brad Shellenbarger and Rosalie Vasile, one part-time civilian cook, Craig Howe, and one part-time
secretary, Patty Avery, complete staff in the Livingston County Jail. The Court Security Unit, is
incorporated within the Corrections Division.

1,080 inmates were placed in the Livingston County Jail in 2007, averaging 114.45 inmates per day. This
includes a daily average of 101.25 males and 13.20 females. 192 females were housed 4,371 days in the
Monroe County Jail as part of a unique arrangement where Livingston County is not charged back, for a
savings on $437,100.00. In 2007, the Alternative To Incarceration Program (ATI) utilized sentenced
inmates who report to the Livingston County Jail in the morning and return home in the evening, to
complete 21,111 hours of community service on 551 projects encompassing 434 work sites. Factored at
the New York State minimum wage rate of $7.15 per hour, these inmates provided $150,943.65 in
savings to local government and not-for-profit organizations who were the benefactors of their labor.

Acute and chronic overcrowding in the Jail reached record proportions, straining resources and
challenging staff and administration in 2007. Numerous tours, audits and evaluations to include an error-
free kitchen inspection and non-appropriated funds audit, were conducted with no major deficiencies or
problems encountered or noted. $663,867.87 in bail money was received by the Jail. Inmate programs
designed to assist rehabilitation efforts included outside presenters who provided and addressed such
diverse topics as sexually transmitted diseases, proper nutrition, training and employment, parenting
skills, anger management, decision making and public speaking. Weekly sessions were conducted by

Alcoholics Anonymous and the Livingston County Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse. 19
inmates earned their General Education Diploma (G.E.D.) following intensive tutoring and instruction by
the Jail teaching staff. College credit courses were made available through Genesee Community College.
78 inmates were deemed eligible for conditional release under New York State Division of Parole
guidelines. 9 inmates submitted applications for early release, with all 9 denied. Corrections personnel
trained a collective total of 1,522 hours in 2007, averaging 39.99 hours per person, exceeding minimum
accreditation mandates of 21 hours. Accreditation standards were maintained with the Annual
Compliance Report submitted and unanimously approved. Sergeant Jack Conklin was selected to attend
the Corrections Executive Training Conference in Colorado.

In 2007, the Sheriff’s Office created, trained and equipped a Corrections Emergency Response Team
(CERT) composed of 10 select Corrections Officers whose primary function is to respond to situations that
may occur in the Jail that cannot be addressed with standard procedures and protocols. In 2007, only 4
reportable incidents were forwarded to the Department of Correction, an unusually low number based on
the inmate population and crowded conditions in the Livingston County Jail. There were no reported
workplace injuries or accidents.

In 2008, the Livingston County Jail will continue to provide and maintain a safe and secure corrections
facility for inmates and staff alike. Every effort will be made to maintain accreditation standards and error-
free inspections and audits. Inmate services designed to rehabilitate by providing opportunity to enroll in
educational courses, earn diplomas and degrees and acquire employment upon release will remain a
paramount objective for the Sheriff’s Office Corrections Division. Future overcrowding will be addressed
with groundbreaking for Jail construction anticipated in the Fall of 2008. Emphasis will be placed on
training for facility supervisors and staff that will meet accreditation standards and address corrections
requirements. Facility safety and cleanliness will remain a continuing primary goal. Community relations
and liaison with State, county and local agencies will continue to revolve around the Alternative To
Incarceration and Work Release Programs. Sound fiscal practice will prevail.

                                      Court Security
The Court Security Unit is responsible for the safety of Judges, staff, attorneys, visitors and inmates in the
Livingston County Court facility. Sergeant David Provo supervises the Unit which is staffed by Court
Security Officers Patrick Lynch, Brent Mistretta, Aaron Galvin, Matthew Templeton, George Frisaris,

Victim Impact Panel & TRIAD

                                Victim Impact Panel

The Victim Impact Panel (VIP), launched in 1999, by Sheriff John M. York is an attempt to reduce
drinking driving by convicted drivers by sentencing them attend a Victim Impact Panel
presentation conducted by the Sheriff’s Office. Local and County Courts and the Probation
Department can direct a drinking driver to attend a session where attendees listen to victims of
drinking driver crashes that resulted in death or serious injury to an innocent person relate how
their lives were affected by an individual who chose to drink and drive.

The VIP was modified in 2003, to add drug offenses and was introduced into the schools for
presentation to high school students at prom time. Much positive feedback has been received
from school officials, teachers, students and parents on the effectiveness of this program.

                        In 2007, 257 persons were directed to attend a VIP session, bringing the
                        total number of attendees to almost 1,500 since inception of the program
                        in 1999. The consensus is victims of drinking driver tragedies, by
                        revealing their heartbreak to convicted offenders, is a very effective tool
                        in combating repeat offenses.


The Livingston County TRIAD meets the first Thursday each month in the
Sheriff’s briefing room and has been doing this since its inception in 1996.
Originally formed by the Sheriff’s Office, Village Chiefs of Police and the
AARP, TRIAD membership is composed of senior citizens representing senior
organizations in 16 of the 17 townships in Livingston County. TRIAD
endeavors to address needs and concerns of senior citizens through direct
contact with law enforcement. Each month the TRIAD meeting features a
presenter with a topic of relevance to seniors, TRIAD projects and a briefing by
the Sheriff’s Office on awareness issues of benefit to seniors. Deputy Phyllis
Applin serves as advisor/liaison to TRIAD.

                                   Richard A. Kane

Richard Kane, Sheriff of Livingston County from 1976 until his retirement in 1989, passed away
Christmas Day, December 25, 2007, following a lengthy illness. Sheriff Kane was hired as a
part-time Deputy, assigned to the Jail and communications in 1961. In 1962, he was appointed
full-time on the Road Patrol by Sheriff James Emery and was promoted to Sergeant in 1965 by
Sheriff Martin Gilbride. As a Road Patrol Sergeant, Sheriff Kane served on one of the first K9
teams in the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office with his partner, K9 “King”. In 1969, Sheriff Kane
was appointed Chief Deputy, comparable to today’s Road Patrol Major, and in 1971 was
selected to be Undersheriff by Sheriff Douglas Welch. In 1976, upon the death of Sheriff Welch,
Richard Kane became Sheriff of Livingston County, serving until 1989. Until illness restricted
Sheriff Kane’s ability to travel, he was a frequent visitor to the Sheriff’s Office displaying an
interest in what was going on and often offering advice and an insight into a variety of topics he
gleaned from a career that spanned almost thirty years. Sheriff Kane will be missed by the many
friends and colleagues made in his lengthy law enforcement career.

2005, in addition to his daily high level of service in the 911 Center to the emergency responders
and public he served so well. Drew departed on August 13, 2007 having fought a long and
