Wyoming County Sheriff Gregory Rudolph encourages residents to support the New York State Sheriffs’ Institute, which began its annual Honorary Membership drive in Wyoming County this week. The institute was established in 1979 to advance criminal justice education, prevent juvenile delinquency, and support victims of crime and their families. 

Programs include:

    • Sheriffs’ Summer Camp: Almost 900 “economically challenged” children from across New York State attend the camp on Keuka Lake in Steuben and Yates counties. The Sheriffs’ Institute pays all costs for the campers, including transportation, a week of camp, meals, and traditional camp activities like sailing, archery and crafts. The camp is in its 41st year of operation.

    • Criminal Justice Scholarship Program: This provides one scholarship to the Criminal Justice Program at each of New York State’s Community Colleges. The program aims to attract the best and the brightest to the criminal justice vocation.

    • Victim Notification Programs: The Sheriffs’ Victim Hotline provides automated notification to registered victims when an inmate is released. The Sheriffs’ Order of Protection Notification Program allows individuals who have been granted Family Court orders of protection to receive alerts when those orders are served.

“The Sheriff’s Institute is our partner in providing programs that help the people in our communities,” Rudolph said. “But we really rely on the support of our honorary members for the Sheriffs’ Summer Camp. Their support allows us to send economically disadvantaged children to camp. These kids wouldn’t have a chance to go away to camp otherwise.”

Wyoming County Sheriff Greg Rudolph recently announced that 10 children from the county are attending the New York State Sheriffs’ Association Institute’s 2016 Summer Camp. The camp is designed to provide a solid recreational program combined with the development of a sense of good citizenship. This will mark the 39th year of the camp’s operation.

The camp, located near Penn Yan in Yates County, is supported by the Sheriffs’ Association Institute’s Honorary Members through their contributions and annual dues. This year, the camp will host more than 900 deserving boys and girls from across New York State.

“This is a great opportunity for our county youth and I personally thank Wyoming County residents for donating and making this possible,” Rudolph said.

The Sheriffs’ Summer Camp Program is designed to provide a child who ordinarily would not have the chance, an opportunity to go away during the summer. The primary objective is to create positive interaction between the kids attending camp and the sheriffs and deputy sheriffs who participate in the camp programs. 

“We have found, from experiences during the first 38 summer camps, that the kids develop a renewed respect and understanding for the men and women who enforce the laws. The deputies become their friends and in coms cases, substitute parents for a week.”

Throughout the week-long stay, the children observe exhibits and demonstrations presented by Sheriffs’ Offices from across the state. Included in these presentations are D.A.R.E. presentations, boat and bike safety programs, law enforcement equipment and technical demonstrations, and even a talent show – just for fun.

Upon completion of their stay, all children will be awarded a diploma for their participation in a program of Good Citizenship and Law Enforcement Studies.
