Oneida County Sheriff's Office

The Oneida County Sheriff's Office is launching its new community affairs unit with hopes that it will continue providing positive contact between law enforcement and the county's residents. 

Sheriff Robert Maciol introduced the community affairs unit during his inaugural state of the county law enforcement address at Utica College earlier this week.

"I need a direct life line to the community of Oneida County. I mean we need the people of Oneida County just as much as they need us," he said.
