INSIDE THE FLX: Cayuga County Sheriff Brian Schenck on getting body cams, distracted driving, an upcoming open house and more (podcast)

In our Lawman Thursday edition, we talked to the Sheriff about:

  • His presentation to the County Legislature’s Public Safety Committee on body-worn cameras. The county is looking for matching funds to help pay for them.
  • A study of fatal accidents that found the top three factors are driver inattention, speed and failure to yield the right of way.
  • Five promotions within the department.
  • A decrease in COVID-19 cases among county jail staff and inmates.
  • A recruiting open house on February 23.
  • The 24/7 medication drop box at the Sheriff’s Department on County House Road.
