How do I formally recognize or make a complaint concerning an employee of the Sheriff's Office?

The Yates County Sheriff’s Office is recognized as a New York State Division of Criminal Justice Law Enforcement accredited agency. In order to accomplish this achievement, a law enforcement agency must develop contemporary policies and procedures to evaluate and improve their overall effectiveness in meeting or exceeding the standards as established by the State Accreditation Council. The topics agencies are evaluated on include administration, training, and operations.
