Cayuga County Sheriff Brian Schenck went before the County Legislature’s Judicial and Public Safety Committee Wednesday night with a proposal to add a School Resource Officer in the Moravia School District.
Sheriff wants SRO in every Cayuga County School District
It is Schenck’s hope that every school in the county will eventually have an SRO. He says the legislature has been supportive of his efforts, and he believes lawmakers will approve the plan to hire a part-time officer.
The officer would be employed by the Sheriff’s Department, with the cost reimbursed by the school district. The Auburn and Weedsport Police Departments are responsible for SROs in those districts..
Sheriff’s Department hiring part-time security officers, full-time Deputies
The Sheriff’s Department is looking to hire part-time safety officers to provide security in the County Courthouse and other county buildings. The department also has openings for full-time Deputies. The next Civil Service exam is set for September 17.
