Community Resource Officers

The Sheriff’s Office’s Community Resource Officer Program (CRO) currently has three Deputy Sheriffs and two Sergeants assigned.   Sergeant Patrick Parks oversees the Elmira City School District CRO Program and Sergeant Thomas Kimble oversees the Horseheads Central School District CRO Program.  Deputy Hodge is full-time at the Ernie Davis Academy, Deputy Masia is full-time at Elmira High School and Broadway Academy, and Deputy Goodwin are full-time at the BOCES Campus.  The goal of these officers is to interact with students in a positive manner on a daily basis.  Deputy Sheriffs assist with counseling, discipline and are in charge of initiating their own program, which helps educate students on how to become productive members of society.


The Chemung County Sheriff's Office, the Elmira City School District and the Horseheads Central School District have expanded their Agreement in order to provide Special Patrol Officers to elementary schools located within the school districts.  Nine (9) retired law enforcement officers were hired as Community Resource Officers for the Elmira City School District and six (6) retired law enforcement officers were hired as Community Resource Officers for the Horseheads School District.  The Chemung County Sheriff's Office has also contracted with Finn Academy since 2019 for one full-time Special Patrol Officer.
