‘The public wants more’: Ontario County residents react to sheriff’s office report

Ontario County residents gather at the Board of Supervisors’ meeting last Thursday, where some expressed disappointment over the lack of transparency and specifics in the recently-released report on the county sheriff’s office.

“This report did absolutely nothing to shed any further light on the specifics of the allegations. The public wants more,” said town of Canandaigua resident Sue Turner, according to Finger Lakes Times. “We continue to be kept waiting and in the dark for the transparency and public disclosure that we have been assured would be forthcoming.”

Another resident- Beth Newell of Phelps- questioned whether the released version of the report was a draft and the final version might be on its way. She also stated her desire to see more details surrounding reports of misconduct among upper-level county officials: “What were their behaviors and actions? What policies were violated? Who were the officials involved? Your report must provide specifics.”

Chair of the ‘209 Committee’ Todd Campbell said the public version of the report can’t mention names of employees besides former Sheriff Kevin Henderson and former Undersheriff Dave Frasca.
