GEDDES, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Hundreds of people walk through the gates at the fairgrounds each day of the fair and with it getting as packed as it does, it is important for the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office to up their patrols to make sure everyone has a fun time at the State Fair. They also say they could use more hands to help out.
During the fair, Sheriff’s Deputies will be hosting a booth that will give fairgoers the opportunity to learn more about what it takes to become an officer and how you can become part of their team.
Onondaga County Sheriff’s Deputies say the fair is a great place to get the word out about the work they do to protect and serve here in the county.
“The fair reaches a lot of people. It not only brings in a lot of people from this county, but surrounding counties throughout the state. And sometimes people from other states travel for the state fair, so it provides an excellent opportunity for us to reach out to more people, provide information for people about the Syracuse area, so it’s beneficial to us,” said Sergeant Jon Seeber.
You can find their booth at the child ID station in the Science and Industry Building where they will be offering up ID tags for parents to make sure all young fairgoers are accounted for.
