ORISKANY – Several members of the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office were promoted at a ceremony at the Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday morning, including the new undersheriff.

Joseph Lisi, who previously served as chief deputy at the Oneida County Child Advocacy Center, has been promoted to the role of undersheriff. Former Undersheriff Robert Swenzkowski vacated the position last Friday to teach criminal justice at Utica College, but he has also been appointed to a part-time position as assistant to the sheriff.

Lisi previously worked as a lieutenant with the Sheriff’s Office before retiring to work as a security supervisor for National Grid. He then returned to the Sheriff’s Office and served as chief deputy of the CAC for three years. That position with the CAC has not yet been filled, and the Sheriff’s Office says they will be interviewing candidates within the next two to three weeks.

Sheriff Rob Maciol says the Sheriff’s Office will soon be undertaking two significant projects, which includes switching the Sheriff’s Office’s Records Management System to a county-wide Records Management System, as well as converting the current radio system to a new county-wide radio system.

Because of staff reassignments to complete those projects, the following employees have been promoted:

- Lieutenant Timothy O’Halloran was promoted to the rank of Captain
- Sergeant Craig Stockhauser was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant
- Corporal Jesse Tuthill was promoted to the rank of Sergeant

Investigator Melissa Bolton, who is assigned to the Child Advocacy Center, was also promoted to the rank of sergeant. The Sheriff’s Office says she will remain at the CAC as a supervisor, and she’s taking the place of recently retired Sgt. Denise Luker.
