Supervisor Bill Reilich Congratulates Seniors on Graduation from the Senior Citizen Police Academy

Supervisor Bill Reilich would like to congratulate all of the senior citizens who participated in the Senior Citizen Police Academy Program.  Supervisor Reilich and the Greece Community and Senior Center partnered with Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn and the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office to host a free Senior Citizen Police Academy this Fall season. This academy offered senior citizens a unique look into the Sheriff’s office and operations. Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn, District Attorney Sandra Doorley, the Public Defender’s office, and Family Court Judges participated in this informative training opportunity. As part of the program, attendees spent eight weeks with the Sheriff’s Office touring the 911 Center, the Jail, the Hall of Justice, the Public Safety Training Facility, and they were given presentations from members of the following specialized teams: Scuba, S.W.A.T., K-9, Hostage Recovery, and the Bomb Squad. Last week, they graduated from the program and were presented with certificates from Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn and Undersheriff Drew Forsythe.

“I am thrilled that so many senior members of our community took advantage of the Senior Citizen Police Academy Program”. said Supervisor Reilich. “I enjoyed being able to partner with Sheriff O’Flynn to bring this valuable program to our seniors”.
