In light of recent school bus stop tragedies motorists are reminded to use due caution during early morning driving hours. Children at bus stops are often waiting during low-light conditions. When school bus drivers approach bus stops, they activate flashing amber lights to indicate a stop is approaching. Motorists need to be prepared to stop when approaching a school bus that has amber lights flashing. After the bus stops, the operator of the bus activates red flashing lights and a stop sign on the road side of the schoolI bus. When the operator feels the environment is safe, they will motion for children to cross the road, either to or from the bus. When all flashing red lights are turned off it is then and only then safe to proceed. As we reflect on the horrible events in the attached media clips, including but not limited to, Indiana and Pennsylvania, we are reminded that no community is immune from disaster. All we can do is work together to provide the highest level of safety, in and for, the residents of Broome County. Drive safe. https://www.foxnews.com/us/indiana-children-killed-at-bus-stop-are-identified-as-siblings-suspect-arrested-police-say https://www.foxnews.com/us/pennsylvania-boy-7-found-dead-at-bus-stop-after-getting-struck-by-a-vehicle-police-say https://www.foxnews.com/us/man-nabbed-after-video-shows-car-driving-onto-sidewalk-to-pass-stopped-school-bus https://www.foxnews.com/us/5-children-2-adults-struck-by-speeding-vehicle-in-florida-police-say

Congratulations to the newly graduated Corrections Officers.

The Broome County Sheriff's Office will be participating in "Grow Nation" again this year. Starting today, Deputies and Corrections Officers will be allowed to grow facial hair. November is an exemption to the policy that usually prohibits uniformed officers from having facial hair. This exception is being used to help promote awareness to the importance of early detection, prevention and treatment of all types of cancers. Members from both the Law Enforcement and Corrections Unions will be making donations to local charities that aide to those in cancer prevention, detection and treatment. The law enforcement union has already started with a donation given to the Mercy House in Endicott.

Attempt to identify. On 10/19/2018, this unknown female entered a Broome County business and used counterfeit $100 bills. Our Detectives are attempting to identify the female shown. Any and all tips will be confidential. Please refer to case number 18-21118 Detective Matt O'Brien 607-778-2053 BCSO Tip Line 607-778-1196

National Teen Driver Safety Week October 21-27, 2018 This week and every week, parents should have conversations with their teens about the important rules they need to follow to stay safe behind the wheel of a passenger car, truck, or SUV. These rules address the greatest dangers for teen drivers: alcohol, inconsistent or no seat belt use, distracted and drowsy driving, speeding, and number of passengers.

The third Saturday in October has been designated National Move Over Day, a reminder to drivers to slow down and safely move over while approaching police, fire and other emergency vehicles and tow trucks that are stopped along roads and highways. As soon as you see lights, vests or reflectors, check traffic around you, SLOW DOWN and safely MOVE OVER. Drivers MUST use due care when approaching an emergency vehicle or hazard vehicle including police vehicles, fire trucks, ambulances, construction and maintenance vehicles and tow trucks. The Move Over Law applies to both sides of the roadway, not just the shoulder on the right. If you can’t move over - SLOW DOWN in the lane that you’re in and be extra cautious.
