Sheriff Cole: Offering Classes To Instruct The Public On Police Work

October 1, 2015
BATH, NY – Steuben County Sheriff Dave Cole announced today that the Sheriff’s Office is giving a 10 week public education course about how police work works. The classes will teach people about criminal investigations, search and seizure guidelines, about K-9 patrols, use of force rules, how the criminal court system works, and other law enforcement information. Sheriff Cole told WLEA News that one of the reasons he’s offering these classes, is to educate people locally, in this climate of nationwide anti-police sentiment. “I’ve been observing like everyone else, some of the defamation of character of police officers in the country, some of the assassinations of police officers, and the very lack of support by the political figures that we look up to, that are elected in office, from the president down to the mayor of New York City,” Cole said. “It shows a the public a lack of political leaders support of the police system.”

There is no cost to apply for the class, which you can do by calling the sheriff’s office in bath at 622-3930, or emailing moirtl@co.steuben.ny.us
