SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Sheriff Eugene Conway of the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Department has confirmed to NewsChannel 9 that he will not be running for re-election come November but will finish his term this year.

The Sheriff has been in law enforcement for more than forty years. He first joined the Sheriff’s Office in 1978.

Conway took over for Sheriff Kevin Walsh back in 2015 and was re-elected for a second term in 2018.

Below is a statement from Sheriff Conway:

I have decided not to seek a third term of the Office of Sheriff.  As I am now in my 45th year of law enforcement and as this profession will always go on there comes a time when those who serve “hand it off”  That time is the end of this year for me.

More importantly there is still much work to be done and accomplished. It is a privilege to hold this position and I remain committed to serving the remainder with the same dedication as I pledged to when I took office.

Thank you!

Sheriff Conway
