About the Program

The Delaware County Sheriff's Office Award Recognition Program recognizes extraordinary acts by both law enforcement officers and civilians during situations which, as seen by both the public and law enforcement, require heroic acts of bravery and courage. The commendation and awards program of the Sheriff's Office is meant to honor those individuals who show qualities that go above and beyond what should ordinarily be expected and are valiant in their effort to preserve life, liberty, and property

Members

Approximately 100 employees come to work every day at the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) to serve and protect our citizens. Patrol Deputies, Corrections Officers, Civil Officers and Administrative Civilian personnel: they all have devoted their life to this mission, going above and beyond the call of duty even when no one is watching. We created the DCSO Super Star program to recognize these hard-working, dedicated public servants for the excellent work they do. We would like to encourage you, our citizens, to tell us how our employee(s) made your day. If they showed you a simple act of kindness when you needed it, if they worked tirelessly to solve your case, or if they saved someone’s life, we would like to hear about it.

Civilians

Every day, civilians do extraordinary things. From performing life-saving measures for their fellow citizens, to completing exemplary acts which protect our community, or assisting law enforcement in crime prevention and detection, these heroic civilians go above and beyond what is needed in an effort to make Delaware County a better place.

If you would like to nominate an officer or a civilian for any type of outstanding service or duty provided within Delaware County, please complete an Application for Recognition. When completing the application, please include as much pertinent information as possible. For assistance, such as obtaining a case number or an officer's name, contact the Undersheriff’s Office at (607)832-5593.

Once the application is received, the Sheriff's office "Awards Committee" will review the application and details of the case. Once determination has been made as to whether the act is deserving of a specific type of award, the person or persons nominated will receive notification. If the nominee is a law enforcement officer, the proceedings will follow those guidelines outlined in the agency's directive. If the nominee is a civilian, they will be notified and presented with the appropriate award at a special event as designated by the Delaware County Sheriff.

A request to nominate an officer or civilian for any type of award or commendation should be based on personal knowledge. When submitting the application, please include all relevant facts, circumstances, and describe the action that is believed to be deserving of recognition.

Completed applications may be submitted in person at the Sheriff’s Office, mailed to The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office ATTN: Undersheriff Timothy Buckley 280 Phoebe Lane, Suite #1, Delhi, NY 13753 or emailed to shrf@co.delaware.ny.us
