Area Sheriffs Back Tenney’s Law Enforcement Plan


Area sheriffs are expressing their support for Congresswoman Claudia Tenney’s law enforcement plan.

Her plan includes establishing a Law Enforcement Bill of Rights, providing funding to improve community relations, and creating grants to allow first responders to procure equipment to keep themselves safe from exposure to fentanyl and other dangerous substances.

I will continue to work with our law enforcement officers from around NY-24 to create safer neighborhoods and put an end to New York’s crime crisis.” 

Tenney has received the support of Cayuga County Sheriff Brian Schenck and Yates County Sheriff Ron Spike who released the following statements:

“Securing and maintaining safe communities today is more challenging than ever for law enforcement,” said Cayuga County Sheriff Brian Schenck. “We must give those that wear the badge the tools and support they need to confront these challenges in an effective way. While it is incumbent upon these public servants to make sound decisions and build positive relationships with those they serve in order to successfully police our communities, it is also critical that those served partner with and support these professionals to ensure their success. Sound legislation that supports public safety, the public, and law enforcement officers is essential to public safety as well. Thank you Representative Tenney for addressing these concerns and supporting our mission to enhance the quality of life for all we serve, and those that put their lives on the line each day.”

“The job of a law enforcement officer in these times is challenging and complex with laws, reforms, technology and social norms ever changing,” said Yates County Sheriff Ronald Spike. “Having the support of the community for professional training and funding will boost the profession in the recruitment and retention of good officers. Representative Claudia Tenney’s efforts in supporting and “backing the blue” for professional law enforcement is commendable for increasing police morale, community trust and public safety to our citizens and crime victims. Thank you Claudia.”
