Yates County Sheriff’s Office Annual K-9 Seminar - CANCELLED


The Yates County Sheriff’s Office wants to do our part to help minimize the spread of the COVID-19 Virus and after careful consideration has decided to cancel the Annual Yates County Sheriff’s Office/New York State Sheriff’s Institute K9 Seminar scheduled for May 3rd- May 7th, 2020.

  • Those of you that have registered and sent in payments, they will be returned
  • NAPWDA has granted a “1” year extension NAPWDA certifications
  • An inquiry has been made with NYS DCJS about NYS Certification extensions

We are looking into the possibility of hosting a training event this fall. We will keep everyone posted. Until then, stay safe and remember:
