Sheriffs’ supervisors attend annual training
Forty-seven Sheriffs’ supervisors from counties across New York State recently attended an annual training conference in Albany sponsored by the New York State Sheriffs' Association and the New York State Sheriffs’ Association Institute. The training program is open to all deputy sheriffs and civilian staff who work in the Sheriffs’ civil law enforcement divisions. All Sheriffs have civil law enforcement functions, which include the service of process, and enforcement of judgments and other court orders and mandates. Sheriffs must keep exact records on such items as collection of judgments for litigants in court action, fees collected for the county, and disbursements to judgment creditors. Supervisors discussed these issues, and also heard presentations from about a new program to notify victims when an order of protection is served on an offender; new legislation affecting property that can be seized to satisfy a money judgment, and ways to share and exchange information to help their offices become more efficient.
This was the 13thannual conference for this group of Sheriffs’ personnel. New York Sheriffs remain committed to providing education and training to advance the professionalism of all aspects of our Sheriffs’ Offices.
The program is offered without fee to participating counties, who only cover the costs of lodging and meals for their employees.
