The union representing deputies within the Ontario County Sheriff’s Workplace is looking for the resignation of Sheriff Kevin Henderson. This growth follows information earlier this month of an ongoing sexual harassment investigation reportedly related to the sheriff.
In a information launch on Tuesday, the Police Benevolent Affiliation (PBA) alleged the poisonous tradition the sheriff created, coupled with the sexual harassment investigation, makes it not possible for him to steer the workplace going ahead. The PBA says below his management 17 deputies have left the workplace since 2019, leaving solely 26 street patrol deputies for a complete of 45 positions. In line with the PBA, three extra deputies are leaving within the subsequent month.
Tuesday’s assertion from the union stated partially:
The Ontario County Board of Supervisors launched an investigation into sexual harassment and different complaints towards the sheriff earlier this month. The deputy sheriff has since resigned. Henderson, in a earlier assertion, has denied any wrongdoing saying he welcomes the findings of the investigation.
