Oneida, Madison Sheriff’s Offices form task force
The Sheriff’s Offices in Oneida and Madison counties have united to form a new joint Drug Task Force.
Oneida County Sheriff Robert M. Maciol and Madison County Sheriff Todd Hood announced Friday that they have deputized each other’s drug investigators to allow for easier investigations across county lines. They said the goal is to combine the resources and expertise of both agencies.
“They’re working multiple cases now with suspects in both counties,” Maciol explained. “We’ve always worked together. This just formalizes it a little more.”
The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office has previously been part of a specifically Oneida County Drug Task Force alongside Rome and Utica police. Authorities said the new joint Task Force will grant full jurisdiction across both counties to drug investigators, creating a more proactive approach to halting the crimes of possession, sale and the manufacturing of narcotics.
