As your Sheriff I will better collaborate with all police agencies in Chautauqua County as well as other organizations to ensure the safety and security of our county residents. The Law Enforcement Agencies in this county have also demonstrated their confidence in my ability to collaborate with them as I have received endorsements from Chautauqua County Association of Chiefs of Police, New York State Police Investigators Association, new York State Troopers PBA, and New York State Deputies Association. This collaboration will extend to our county Legislature to ensure an open and honest budget.
