Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office releases June activity report

Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office has released their activity report for the month of June.

On Friday June 25th, members of the Sheriff’s Office participated in the second annual Getting to Know You event in partnership with the Harriet Tubman Center for Justice and Peace. Representatives from our local social justice organizations, the Auburn Police Department, and community leaders joined us for conversation and lunch as we continue to build personal relationships.

Four unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) were placed into service. The drones will be used for search and rescue operations as well as support from the air when needed.

Custody Officers Julie Hewitt and Thomas Dunham graduated from our inhouse 12-week Basic Custody Academy. They are currently working in the jail completing their field training program. Deputy Christopher Walser with the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office did attend our training class and graduated as well.

K-9 Pitt and Deputy Slobe graduated from a 9-week course to prepare them for patrol service provided by the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office. In a few weeks they will return for an additional 6-week certification training program in narcotics detection.

On June 11 numerous members of the Sheriff’s Office ran in the annual Special Olympics Torch Run through Cayuga County. We are proud to support this great cause and wish our athletes all the best!

Corporal Brandon Rindfleisch, Deputy Brendan Raftis, and Civil Enforcement Officer Sue Alvarado teamed up with our NY State Police partners on June 12 to inspect child safety restraints and provide education on their proper installation at a Child Passenger Safety Check at the Finger Lakes Mall.

At the time of this report we are housing 157 total inmates in our jail. Of those inmates, 33 are Federal board-ins, 18 NY State Parole Violators that are facing new charges, and 10 Parolees that have been detained for violating their Parole.

On June 12 Sheriff Schenck partnered with NY State Senator Pam Helming and Auburn Police Chief Shawn Butler to secure unneeded prescription medication at a Shed The Meds detail in Auburn, located at the Walgreens Pharmacy on Genesee Street. 109 pounds of medication and supplies were collected for safe destruction.

We continue to partner with Nick’s Ride for Friends, the Cayuga County Drug Free Coalition, and the HEALing Communities Study to engage the public at local events to secure and dispose of dangerous unneeded prescription medication, provide drug prevention, treatment, and peer support information, and provide the opiate overdose reversal medication Naloxone. On July 24 we will be hosting an event in the Village of Union Springs from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM at the Union Springs Fire House.

The Centralized Arraignment Part (CAP) Court within our jail was utilized for 64 pre-arraignment detainees in June.

We are currently recruiting for full and part-time Registered Nurses in our Medical Division. Go to to find entry opportunities and information on how to apply.
