Crime Victim Services

 It is important to those who have been victimized to know if that offender has been served an order of protection or is incarcerated in a correctional facility – and to know if and when that offender is released from custody.

Summer Camp

Our Goal

Help kids build confidence, practice respect and learn the importance of teamwork through a fun-filled camp experience.

The Sheriffs’ Summer Camp is located on Keuka Lake in Penn Yan, NY

It is for boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 12 who because of economic reasons would not have an opportunity to attend a summer camp or enjoy a summer vacation. At the camp, kids are technology-free, as they make new friends, enjoy the outdoors, and try new things like fishing and sailing. While there, campers interact positively with law enforcement who are there as counselors and volunteers complementing the camp staff. Hundreds of kids each year attend the summer camp at no cost to their families due to the generosity of donors.

The NYS Sheriffs’ Institute is committed to helping crime victims by providing free alerts and resources.

Order of Protection Notification System
The 45-minute period after an Order of Protection is served is crucial for a victim. Our Order of Protection Notification System allows domestic violence victims to be notified by phone, text message, or e-mail when an Order is served, providing the information they need to take appropriate precautions for themselves and their loved ones. This free service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Inmate Release Notification System
Crime victims often are haunted by thoughts of their offender. Knowing their custody status can provide peace of mind. Our Inmate Release Notification System monitors offenders in New York’s jails so victims can anonymously look up offenders and register to receive notification of change in custody status by phone, email, or text message. This free service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

If you are a victim of crime or abuse, our crime victim alerts are just one part of your safety plan. For help creating your safety plan and for more information about resources available to you, visit our resources page.To connect with crime victim service agencies in your county, visit the NY Sheriffs’ Victim Service Provider Directory.
