During his tenure as undersheriff, Paravati oversaw the completion and opening of the new Oneida County Jail in Oriskany, which added 448 beds and modernized the facility, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Before he served as undersheriff, Paravati worked for the state Commission of Corrections and he was honored by then Gov. Mario Cuomo for his commitment and dedication working with jail-related issues throughout the state.

“The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office sends our most sincere condolences to the family of Undersheriff Paravati during this difficult time,” the notice from Sheriff Rob Maciol read.
