County undersheriff attends training session in Saratoga Springs
St. Lawrence County Undersheriff Scott Bonno recently attended an annual training conference in Saratoga Springs sponsored by the New York State Sheriffs' Association.The conferences provide officers training and a chance to meet with their colleagues from around the state and discuss common issues.
Undersheriffs are appointed directly by the county sheriff and most often serve as the chief administrative officer for the sheriff’s office. In this role, undersheriffs review all operations of the office, including the sheriffs’ road patrol and investigative divisions, the county jail, the civil law enforcement division, court security, and 911/communications and dispatch division.
