ORISKANY, N.Y. -- The Oneida County Sheriff's Office has something that most counties in the state do not.

The department was formally recognized for the state accreditation of its corrections division.

The county executive and the executive director of the New York State Sheriff's Association were in attendance at the Oneida County Court House for the ceremony.

With the formal accreditation, Oneida County becomes the 12th fully accredited sheriff's office out of 60 in the state of New York.

The sheriff's office civil division was also formally recognized Wednesday for its "reaccreditation," but these are not easy accreditations to achieve.
