The preliminary report on on allegations of misconduct in the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office will be released in late March, with some of the report set to be made public.
“The preliminary report will be given to the board by our March 31 meeting. We feel that it’s time to at least have a public-facing statement,” said West Bloomfield Supervisor Todd Campbell, who chairs the “209 Committee,” according to Finger Lakes Times.
Local Law 209 enables the Ontario County Board of Supervisors to appoint a committee to look into allegations brought forth against any county official.
County officials have not disclosed any details of the report, though they have pointed to instances of sexual harassment and inappropriate language. The committee has approved two sheriff’s office compliance investigators.
“There will be a public version of the report, and we will have more details for the board at the March 31 meeting in executive session, so we can have a frank discussion, if needed,” said Campbell.
