Funeral arrangements have been made for former Oneida County Sheriff William "Bill" Hasenauer, who died Wednesday at age 89.
Hasenauer, a graduate of Utica Free Academy, began his law enforcement career with the Oriskany Police Department where he went on to be chief, according to his obituary.
He later worked for the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office and served as sheriff from the 1973 until his retirement in 1990. Current Oneida County Sheriff Rob Maciol says Hasenauer was the longest-serving sheriff in Oneida County.
Hasenauer was also known for the important role he played in implementing the 911 Emergency System in Oneida County, and his 10-year term as Forestport town supervisor.
