About the Broome County Sheriff's Office 

According to the Broome County Sheriff, “The Broome County Sheriff's Office was established in 1806. The first sheriff, William Woodruff, rode on horseback, enforcing laws. Broome County is located in south central New York state. Currently the office serves a population of approximately 220,000 people in a 850 mile patrol area. This area encompasses city, suburban and rural type settings. As well as patrolling interstates 81, 86 and 88 which pass through the center of the county.
 

The office is broken into these divisions: Civil Division: responsible for handing and delivering civil processes such as judgments, evictions and auctions; Corrections Division: responsible for maintaining custody of prisoners remanded by courts; Detective Division: responsible for major crimes and juvenile violators, special investigations and major crime tracking; Highway Patrol Division: responsible for law enforcement, arrest of lawbreakers, criminal investigations, auto accident investigations, and public safety; Identification Division: responsible for pistol permits, sheriff id cards, fingerprinting, and criminal records; Training Division: responsible for mandated police and correctional training.
