We are blessed in our Tri-County listening area to have three dedicated and highly professional sheriff's at the head of each county's law enforcement agency.  We are very lucky to have such dedicated administrators as Sheriff Richard Devlin (Otsego County), Sheriff Craig DuMond (Delaware County) and Sheriff Ernest Cutting (Chenango County) operating on behalf of the citizens of each of our counties,.

A special shout out goes today to Chenango County Sheriff Ernest Cutting.  Sheriff Cutting has just been elected to the prestigious position of Chairman of the Executive Committee of the New York State Sheriff's Association..  Sheriff' Cutting's election to the this top position came on May 7, 2021 at the New York State Sheriff's Association Spring Training Conference which was held at the Desmond Hotel in Albany.
In this role, Sheriff Cutting will work with other New York State sheriff's in providing high quality public safety missions through training and accreditation programs and advocacy.
The New York State Sheriffs' Association, Inc. 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. It comprises all of the elected and appointed Sheriffs of New York State.
