ORISKANY, N.Y. -- A dozen Oneida County correction officers graduated Wednesday, after undertaking emergency response training.
They're now members of the SERT team, for Sheriff's Emergency Response Team. They train and recruit new members as needed, and officers say it's been a few years.
"If an inmate’s combative, or if we have to move them and he's refusing to come out of his cell, that's where they'll activate our SERT team and we will actually go in and move that individual,” said Sergeant Joe Surace.
Everyone who got the SERT training submitted a letter of interest, asking to be considered for the program.
