  WHEREAS, The quality of life in New York State is largely reflective
of the commitment and dedication demonstrated by members of the agencies
which serve to protect, preserve and maintain public order; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and
honor those distinguished citizens who  devote  their  life's  work  and
purpose  to  public service, contributing to the care and welfare of the
citizens of the State of New York; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and  in  full  accord  with  its
long-standing  traditions,  this  Legislative  Body  is  justly proud to

from 1970-1987, and current Sheriff, Jim Allard; and

sole and only law enforcement agency in the County; today, the Office is
a   diverse   organization   providing   service   in  Law  Enforcement,
Corrections, Civil, Court Security, School Safety and Navigation Safety;
  WHEREAS, For over two centuries, the Steuben County Sheriff's Office
has remained true to its mission  of  keeping  the  peace  by  providing
public  safety  and  law enforcement services to the citizens of Steuben
County; and
  WHEREAS, The tradition of altruistic  public  service,  heroism  and
leadership  embodied  by  the Steuben County Sheriff's Office is of such
magnitude as to  be  worthy  of  special,  statewide  recognition;  now,
therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the  225th  Anniversary  of  the  Steuben  County  Sheriff's
Office; and be it further
  RESOLVED,  That  a  copy  of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
