Virts cites unsung work of Wayne County Sheriff’s Office divisions

The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office’s road patrol might be the most public face of the department, but the work of the other divisions is no less important, said Sheriff Barry Virts.

Virts paid tribute to his staff at the Wayne County Board of Supervisors meeting last week, where he and members of his team celebrated the re-accreditation by the New York State Sheriff’s Association of the department’s civil office and court security divisions, as well as the accreditation of the jail division.

Virts told supervisors that the road patrol “gets most of the glory” but that the work of the other divisions, such as civil, which issues court summons and many other legal papers, can be “just as dangerous and just as stressful.”

Peter Kehoe, executive director of the state Sheriff’s Association, attended the Tuesday, Nov. 21, meeting, where he honored Virts and department members.
