A local correction officer and deputy were both honored today at the Oneida County Board of Legislators’ monthly meeting for their service in law enforcement.

American Legion Post 1290 Commander Don Light joined Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente and Sheriff Rob Maciol in presenting the American Legion Correction Officer of the Year award to Michael Durant and the Deputy of the Year award to Stephen Manley.

Officer Durrant is a 23-year veteran of the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, and prior to that he served in the U.S. Army from 1984-1991. Durant was nominated for the award by Sheriff Maciol “for his continued good work in combating the introduction of contraband into the Oneida County Correctional Facility,” according to a news release from Sheriff Maciol.

Durant is assigned to the control towers in the jail and he monitors visits between inmates and visitors by camera monitors. Several inmates and visitors have been caught transferring contraband – such as tobacco, marijuana and opiates – during their visits thanks to Durant’s observations, according to Maciol.

Durant previously received the Sheriff’s Good Conduct Award and the Sheriff’s Emergency Medical Technicians Team Award.

Deputy Manley is an eight-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office’s Road Patrol Division, and he was nominated for the Deputy of the Year Award by Sheriff Mariol “due to his unique dedication to both his law enforcement and military careers,” according to Maciol. Manley served in the U.S. Air Force from 2000 until 2006 when he received an Honorable Discharge.

Manley has often gone above and beyond what’s expected of him in his patrol duties and his personnel file is full of “thank you” notes from local residents and businesses, according to Maciol.

Manley previously received the Sheriff’s Patriot Award, which has only been given out twice since 2011, due to his service in the U.S. Air Force, which included 11 deployments. He still serves in the U.S. Air Force/Air National Guard, according to Maciol.
