Allegany County Sheriff’s Office Receives Reaccreditation of County Correctional Facility

The Allegany County Sheriff’s Office was honored for having earned reaccreditation of the County Correctional Facility during a meeting of the Allegany County Board of Legislators Monday afternoon. Sheriff Ricky Whitney was presented with a plaque marking that achievement by Peter Kehoe, Executive Director of the New York State Sheriffs Association. The facility was first accredited in 2010 and earned re-accreditation in 2015 and again this year. Executive Director Kehoe praised Sheriff Whitney, Jail Administrator Chris Ivers, and all the jail staff for their hard work in maintaining the facility’s long-standing accredited status. Kehoe pointed out that fewer than half of the county jails in the state have earned accreditation to date, and that the County Board of Legislators and the citizens of the county should be very proud of their Sheriff’s Office, which is well respected throughout the State. Legislative Board Chairman Curtis Crandall added his congratulations to the Sheriff’s Office and the jail staff for a job well done.
