The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office has a new undersheriff.
Sheriff Rob Milby appointed Tammy Ryndock to the post, which is the #2 role in the leadership structure.
Ryndock is a Newark native, with parents who were also in law enforcement. She served as chief of police for the town of Sodus for 25 years.
She’s been with the sheriff’s office for most of two decades- building an impressive law enforcement resume along the way.
Sheriff Milby had asked Ryndock if she would serve in the leadership team. Then in December, she was asked to serve as undersheriff.
“The way that the Sheriff and I relate to the public is of utmost importance to us. We are public minded servants and I feel we round each other out,” Ryndock told The Wayne Times. “We subscribe to the notion of ‘Treat people as equals, no matter who they are’.”
Serving the community is what she hopes to do in her expanded role.
“I try to live my life to the fullest,” she added. “To be happy and healthy and serve others as a decent human being.”
