Thomas, Finnemore, Cumpston spend two weeks in training
Albany, NY – Fifty deputy sheriffs and civilian staff from Sheriff’s offices around the state attended the New York State Sheriffs’ Institute civil school held recently in Albany, New York, including Deputy Dale Thomas, Deputy Cole Finnemore and Civil Account Clerk Kelly Cumpston from the Allegany County Sheriff’s Office. This was the second week in a two week-long day training program offered each year by the NYS Sheriffs’ Institute.
All Sheriffs have civil law enforcement functions, including the service of process and enforcement of judgments and other court orders and mandates. The school provides participants with training in the latest advances in civil law enforcement and a forum to discuss current civil law enforcement issues and share best practices.
Last year the Allegany County Sheriff’s civil division made over 2,000 services and collected over $400,000 in Fines, undertakings, bail and judgements.
The Sheriffs’ Institute is a not-for-profit corporation formed in 1979 to advance criminal justice education, prevent juvenile delinquency, and support victims of crime and their families.
