Quattrone Receives County Police Chiefs Association Endorsement

MAYVILLE – The Chautauqua County Association of Chiefs of Police has endorsed James Quattrone for Sheriff of Chautauqua County, according to an announcement Tuesday from Quattrone’s campaign.
The Chiefs of Police Association represents the Chiefs of Police of Dunkirk, Ellicott, Fredonia, Jamestown, Lakewood-Busti, New York State University Police at Fredonia, and Westfield Police Departments.
Quattrone released the following statement:
“Chautauqua County residents and visitors deserve a community that they can feel safe and secure. It is only when agencies can collaborate and cooperate with each other that we will have these safe communities. The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office needs to better utilize its current workforce and work with all police agencies – local, state, and federal to ensure the quality of life we deserve. It is equally important that the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office work alongside other government agencies, non-profit’s, and Emergency Medical Services to develop more efficient and effective ways to combat our drug epidemic. I believe that the Chautauqua County Association of Chiefs of Police recognizes that I am ready and able to promote such collaborations.”
“While working together in a collaborative and cooperative manner we can develop positive efforts to combat the drug epidemic which has led to increased crime rates, increased rates of incarceration, and increased financial costs to our county residents. We need to find smarter ways to combat these issues and reduce the rates recidivism. We must unify the county’s efforts on drug enforcement rather than having multiple drug task forces so that we can effectively remove those who are selling and dealing in the poison that is taking too many lives. At the same time we need to work with our rehabilitation centers and peer advocacy networks to assist those who are fighting addictions and are seeking help.”
“I look forward to developing these positive partnerships with the various agencies that are working hard to make Chautauqua County a great place to live for all. I encourage people to get out to vote on November 6 so we can experience positive change in Chautauqua County.”
