DuBois, Sullivan County Sheriff Michael Schiff along with seven other upstate New York sheriffs' offices including Putnam County met Monday with New York City Police Commissioner William C.

Putnam County was represented at the meeting by Undersheriff Peter Convery.
In a press statement, Sheriff DuBois said, “We appreciate Commissioner Bratton and members of his command staff taking time out from their busy schedules to speak with us."
"NYPD under Commissioner Bratton’s leadership is on the cutting edge and leads the world in all aspects of policing,'' DuBois added. "We are lucky to have access to NYPD and their resources in partnership to benefit our agencies and the people we protect.”
