INSIDE THE FLX: Sheriff Schenck talks inmate suicide report, ‘Yellow Dot’ program, and overdose data (podcast)

Today on Inside the FLX we’re getting an update from Cayuga County. Sheriff Brian Schenck says the jail population there is down, to a figure he hasn’t seen in more than a year. While he’s not sure what the data means, it’s something that has local law enforcement’s attention. He also talks about a new program he hopes local residents will take advantage of called ‘Yellow Dot’. It helps first responders quickly sort out information about individuals when they’re involved in an accident or medical emergency. He also discusses a report released by New York State on a suicide that happened at the Cayuga County Jail in November 2022.
