ORISKANY - Oneida County Undersheriff Robert Swenszkowski is retiring, effective the end of August.

Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol says the undersheriff is leaving in order to teach full-time at Utica College.

Maciol says Swenszkowski, who has a master's degree, has 25 years in the retirement system. Swenszkowski started his law enforcement career as a part-time corrections officer with the sheriff's office in 1992. In 1993, he became full-time. In 2002, he became a deputy sheriff in the civil division.

In 2006, Swenszkowski was employed as a police officer in the Village of New York Mills, eventually becoming the Village Police Chief in 2009. In 2011, Swenszkowski returned to the Oneida County Sheriff's Office and has served as undersheriff since.

"I will certainly miss the dedication, commitment and energy of the undersheriff, but at the same time I'm also very excited for him, as this was a long-time goal of his and he worked very hard to achieve it. I am very fortunate to be close friends with him, so he won't be very far away, should I need his assistance or advice." said Sheriff Maciol.

Joseph Lisi, current Chief Deputy of the Child Advocacy Center in Utica, will take over as undersheriff. Lisi is expected to be sworn in September 3. Sheriff Maciol says a search is underway for Lisi's replacement at the CAC.
