Christopher G. O’Brien

Executive Director

Chris has been with the NYS Sheriffs’ Institute since it was established in 1979. As Executive Director, Chris oversees the many activities of the Institute, including the Sheriffs’ Summer Camp, the Criminal Justice Scholarship Program, the Victim Notification Programs, and the Honorary Membership Program that helps to support our work. While he is responsible for our many programs, for Chris it truly is all about the kids.
