Governor Andrew M. Cuomo proclaimed September 21-27, 2014 as Sheriff's Week in New York State.

The Office of Sheriff has the distinction of being one of the first public offices in colonial America and was established in New York State's first Constitution.  Sheriff’s Week celebrates the significant contributions made by the office of sheriff in county government and in the statewide criminal justice system. The Office of Sheriff is unique and its duties encompass many facets of public service, such as maintaining the county jail, road patrol, dispatching emergency services, and serving and executing civil process.

Sheriff James R. Voutour is proud to announce a new web series and "Coffee with a Cop" event to highlight the Niagara County Sheriff's Office during Sheriff's Week.  The new web series, "Behind the Star", will be shown this week and a new video will be added daily. "These videos will give the public an inside look at the Sheriff's Office operations," said Sheriff James R. Voutour.  "As a public office we want our residents to know what their Sheriff's Office does."  The web series can be viewed by going to our facebook page at NiagaraSheriff.  Our "Coffee with a Cop" event will be held on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at Tim Horton's, 5816 South Transit Road, Lockport at 9:00 a.m.
