Nurse sought for sheriff’s department

JOHNSTOWN — Fulton County Sheriff Richard Giardino is requesting the Board of Supervisors waive the residency rule for hire of a county jail registered nurse position.

The sheriff sought permission this week through the board’s Public Safety Committee to accept applicants who reside outside of Fulton County due to lack of interest from advertising. The full board will vote April 10.

Giardino also reported training at his department the last six months included: field training, sending investigators to schools, sending deputies to active shooter and officer survivor training, and in house training for drug recognition and victim and witness interviewing.

The committee approved a proposed resolution awarding food bids for the county jail. They include Sysco Foods of Halfmoon — frozen food, $23,892; and Sysco — refrigerated/dry goods.
