The New York State Sheriffs' Association Inc. elected its executive committee at the 82nd annual Winter Training Conference, held last month at the Desmond Hotel in Albany. Among the new members is Niagara County Sheriff James Voutour.
Voutour is expected to work with the newly elected president of the association, Herkimer County Sheriff Chris Farber, and sheriffs from around New York state. They will further the efforts of the Sheriffs' Association to enhance public safety in the state through professional training and accreditation programs, public safety programs and advocacy.
The New York State Sheriffs' Association is a not-for-profit corporation formed in 1934 for the purpose of assisting sheriffs in the efficient and effective delivery of services to the public. Its membership includes all elected and appointed sheriffs in New York state.
