Due to the recent retirement of the Genesee Valley BOCES School Resource Officer, Deputy Richard S. Schildwaster has been assigned to fill this position. He is a six-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office and was the former SRO at Byron-Bergen Central School District.

Additionally, the Oakfield-Alabama, Pembroke, Alexander, and Pavilion Central School Districts also renewed their commitments for this year’s School Resource Officers on campus.
Sheriff Sheron has previously stated that it his goal to establish a School Resource Officer in all county schools to ensure the safety and protection of the students and faculty. “Although the cost associated with placing a School Resource Officer in the schools is significant, I continue to believe the safety and security of our children should be of the utmost precedence.”
