NYSSA Accreditation

Available to New York agencies


To assist the sheriffs in maintaining the highest standards of professionalism, the Sheriffs’ Association offers accreditation programs for the corrections, court security, civil, and 911 communications (PSAP) divisions of the sheriff’s offices. The accreditation process improves operations, increases morale, reduces incidences of liability, reduces insurance costs and presents a professional image to the community.
