The Ontario County Sheriff’s Department’s 911 Center has been recognized with Re-Accreditation, joining an elite group of only twelve emergency communication centers across New York State to achieve this status.
The prestigious honor was formally presented by Peter Kehoe from the New York State Sheriffs’ Association to Sheriff David Cirencione and his team. The accolade was awarded at this month’s Board of Supervisors meeting, where the Sheriff’s Office received a commemorative plaque in recognition of their outstanding achievement.
This Re-Accreditation comes after a rigorous three-day on-site evaluation of the 911 Center’s policies, procedures, and live operations. The review confirmed that the Ontario County Sheriff’s 911 Center adheres to, or surpasses, all the professional standards set by New York State for Public Safety Answering Points. The Sheriff’s Office expressed gratitude on its Facebook page to Chief DeChick and the entire staff for their unwavering commitment to service.
Special acknowledgment was given to Accreditation Manager, Senior Communications Officer Dustin Gittens, for his year-round efforts in ensuring that the center’s policies and training align with state standards and for preparing the necessary documentation for the assessment team during the Re-Accreditation process. This recognition underscores the dedication and professionalism of the Ontario County Sheriff’s 911 Center in providing critical emergency services to the community.
