Car 7 With Windmills 1

Undoubtedly the most visible Division. The Patrol Division is led by Captain Erik Tamol. A typical shift is staffed with a Sergeant and at least an assigned East and West Zone Deputy covering eight towns each. Depending on scheduling there may be a fourth Deputy on the shift who will cover busy zones or serve as back up to required calls such as domestic incidents, warrants or other serious complaints. Aside from the normal police duties (handling complaints, traffic enforcement, inmate transports and events), they also conduct property checks and are active in the schools. Many have other collateral duties such as: Crash Management Team, Drug Recognition Expert, Child Passenger Seat Technician, Drug Task Force, Certified Police Instructor, Evidence Technician, School Resource Officer and Field Training Officer. Every Deputy has been to Active Shooter School at the State Preparedness Training Facility, and trained in the administering of Naloxone and AED/First Aid Certified. We continue to strive to have well trained and well-rounded Deputies to serve our community and be first responders to all types of incidents. Deputies have been first on the scene at many overdoses, serious injury or fatal crashes, armed robberies, homicides, fires, suicide attempts, mental health crisis, serious assaults and drug offenses.  There are three specialty units:

  1. Court Security Unit- The Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office contracts with the New York State Office of Court Administration to provide Court Security to the various courts (Criminal, Civil, Family, Domestic Violence, Treatment, Probate, Surrogates, Support and Grand Jury) in session at our County Courthouse.  They also handle various complaints such as:  Volunteer Fire Fighter “arson checks,” lost pistol permits, lost license plates and can be assigned to regular patrol on busy days or when court is not in session. County Building Security is a collaborative effort between the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Social Services that funds the position.  The assigned Deputy conducts regular rounds and checks at the various County Buildings to maintain security of the public and county employees.
  2. School Resource Officer Unit- The Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office through support from the Wyoming County Board of Supervisors, the Attica and Letchworth School Districts provides full time School Resource Officers at both districts.  The SROs look to improve security, develop relationships with the students, partner with staff and to promote health and safety in the classrooms. They are trained in Active Shooter, School Resource Officer Certified and DARE Certified.
  3. Marine Unit- The Marine Unit is staffed by part time Deputies and coordinates with the New York State Police to provide patrol coverage on Silver Lake.
