The Genesee County Sheriff's Office recently filled two vacant correction officer positions with the hiring of East Bethany resident Jeremy J. Cypress and Bergen resident Jason E. Johnston.
The two correction officers graduated in a class of 15 from the Niagara County Basic Corrections five-week Academy earlier this year. Officer Cypress was the Class President.
Training included instruction in the care and custody of inmates, inmate supervision, defensive tactics, firearms training and other topics pertaining to corrections.
Sheriff Gary T. Maha stated, "Correction officers Cypress and Johnston will be great assets to the jail."
