Full Search of the Correctional Facility

On Thursday, May 2, 2024, members of the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office conducted a full search of the Seneca County Correctional Facility in an effort to promote safety and security. The search was conducted by Correction Officers with support from both Seneca County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Units and an additional K-9 Unit from the Schuyler County Sheriff’s Office. As a result of the extensive search, no illegal contraband was found within the facility or in the possession of any Incarcerated Individuals.

Sheriff Thompson stated, “I credit our Correction Officers for their hard work and determination in keeping illegal contraband out of the Correctional Facility. We will be conducting these searches regularly in the future to keep our Correction Officers, Civilian Staff, and Incarcerated Individuals safe while they are here. There will be zero tolerance for illegal contraband.”
