Law Enforcement Survey

Schuyler County Sheriff Patch

Schuyler Police Reform and Reinvention Initiative Begins


The Schuyler County Sheriff’s Office serves the law enforcement needs of all the citizens of the County, and strives to do so in a professional manner, respecting the rights of all our citizens without regard to race, color, nationality, creed, gender or sexual orientation.  Department policies and procedures are developed and carried out with that goal in mind, and our Deputy Sheriffs are selected, trained and supervised with that same goal in mind.

Pursuant to Executive Order No. 203: New York Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative, Schuyler County Administrator Tim O’Hearn and Sheriff William Yessman will be convening a panel of community stakeholders to conduct a review of the Schuyler County Sheriff’s police force deployments, strategies, policies, procedures, and practices. Subsequent to this review and in partnership with our community, recommendations will be brought forth designed to improve such deployments, strategies, policies, procedures, and practices, for the purposes of addressing the particular needs of Schuyler County and promote community engagement to foster trust, fairness, and legitimacy, and to address any racial bias and disproportionate policing of communities of color.


As part of that effort, a community survey has been created to help our County gather opinions and experiences from members of our community. This is the first step in a process that will culminate with the development of a plan to be submitted to the Schuyler County Legislature for their consideration and ratification.


We invite all Schuyler County residents and business owners to participate in this survey to help us improve our services, processes, and reputation.
