Tompkins County Sheriff plans satellite office in Newfield

The Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office is planning a satellite location in the Town of Newfield following requests from local government.

Conversations over potential Newfield satellite offices began with Town Supervisor Michael Allinger before the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020, according to Ithaca Voice.

The main Sheriff’s Office is located in the Town of Lansing. For sheriff’s deputies responding to a call in Newfield, it could take up to a half hour to arrive at the scene. The new satellite office could shorten response times significantly.

The satellite office will be located in the Newfield Town Hall with an opening date yet to be announced.
