Providing for the community through professional development
and charitable actions.
The Rensselaer County Deputy Sheriff’s Police Benevolent Association is comprised
of the Deputies and Sergeants of the Highway Patrol Division of the Rensselaer County
Sheriffs Office. The PBA was formed in December 1996 and became recognized by Rensselaer County as an official union and bargaining agent in February 1999.
The PBA strives to be a positive influence in the community in as many ways as possible. We make monetary donations to worthwhile charities and organizations in Rensselaer County. The PBA also assists the Sheriff in training and equipping members when necessary. One goal of the PBA is to put highly trained law enforcement professionals on the roads of Rensselaer County and give them the tools to perform a difficult job.
Many deputies have specialized training to do things such as investigate and reconstruct auto accidents, process crime scenes and evidence, utilize canines for drug searches, tracking, and arson investigation, and enforce laws pertaining to commercial vehicles. Members of the PBA do everything from properly installing child safety seats in cars to investigating major crimes; from helping you locate your lost dog to helping you locate your lost child.
The Rensselaer County Deputy Sheriff's PBA is committed to serving the Rensselaer County community. Part of that service involves giving back to the people that we serve. Therefore, you will notice the PBA involved in community activities and functions throughout Rensselaer County. Several examples can be found in our recent support of several little league teams and a series of college scholarships which the PBA will be setting up for local high school graduates.
In closing the Rensselaer County Deputy Sheriff's PBA invite you to browse our website as it has undergone many changes and will be updated regularly.
