Sheriff Tim Howard and Chief Scott Joslyn present an award for valor to Deputy Christopher Soluri

October 3, 2013 - Chief of Patrol Services Scott Joslyn and Sheriff Tim Howard give Deputy Christopher Soluri New York State's Certificate of Exceptional Valor regarding his exemplary action last year in which an armed despondent male threatened to kill himself and others. Deputy Soluri distinguished himself through his actions by performing the courageous act of negotiating with a mentally unstable suspect with a knife while in close proximity to the suspect with little room to maneuver or retreat. While knowing the risk he faced, Deputy Soluri took aggressive, timely action protecting the lives of the suspect's girlfriend, their baby and the suspect himself. It is the mission of our Office to preserve public safety to all persons -even those that put us in harm's way. Congratulations Deputy Soluri!
