O’Neill receives third endorsement in race for Jefferson County sheriff


Jefferson County sheriff candidate Colleen M. O’Neill received the endorsement of the Police Conference of New York Inc. in a statement issued Monday afternoon.

The conference, a group consisting of 230 police forces and about 25,000 police officers across the state, unanimously endorsed Ms. O’Neill.

“I am delighted that they recognized my experience and qualifications and determined that my candidacy was worthy of such recognition,” Ms. O’Neill said in a statement. “My deepest appreciation goes out to the entire PCNY membership and I will continue to work hard in this campaign to make them proud.”

Ms. O’Neill, running as a Democrat, has also received endorsements from the New York State Police Investigators Association and the Police Benevolent Association of New York State Troopers since announcing her candidacy on Jan. 16.

Current undersheriff Paul W. Trudeau is also running as a Democrat and retired Portland, Ore., city police detective sergeant and Watertown native John R. Bocciolatt is running as a Republican.
