Twelve new officers are on the job after graduating from the annual Corrections Officer Academy at the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office.
In their monthly “snapshot” for April, Sheriff Tim Luce and Undersheriff John Cleere said the seven-week academy wrapped up with an April 26 graduation ceremony. The officers are working in Seneca, Yates and Ontario counties.
Deputies and investigators responded to 892 calls for service in April, making 60 arrests. There were 11 drug arrests and six new drug cases opened.
The Division of Human Services Fraud Unit investigated 233 cases last month and has recouped nearly $74,000 for the year.
On the corrections side, the average number of inmates at the county jail was 58. More than $36,000 was generated from boarding out-of-county prisoners, bringing the yearly total to more than $146,000.
