State Senator Pam Helming revealed on Tuesday that Wayne County Undersheriff Tammy Ryndock was awarded the 2023 Woman of Distinction honor for the 54th Senate District, as part of the New York State Senate Women of Distinction program.
Ryndock, a groundbreaking figure in law enforcement, made history in 2022 when she became the first woman to assume the Undersheriff role. Her 25-year law enforcement tenure has seen her climb ranks from field training officer to Detective Lieutenant, while serving in the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office since 2000.
In her distinguished career, Undersheriff Ryndock has dedicated herself to investigating crimes against children, a responsibility she describes as her passion. Her commitment extends to her role as a Deputy U.S. Marshal and her assignment to a regional FBI child exploitation/human trafficking task force.
Additionally, she serves on the advisory boards of the Wayne County Child Advocacy Center and the Survivor Advocacy Center of the Finger Lakes. The award recognizes her significant contributions to law enforcement, and her steadfast dedication to the community and the protection of its most vulnerable members.
