Code Enforcement Oversight Report


The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office is reporting a telephone scam where an individual calls and identifies themselves as a Wayne County Sheriff’s Deputy.


The scammer’s story is that the citizen missed a court order to serve as a juror and they needed to pay a civil fine. The individual goes on utilizing threatening techniques to secure credit card or debit card information.


The Sheriff’s Office has very limited instances where they collect civil fines through the Sheriff’s Civil Division. When this does occur, it IS NOT OVER THE TELEPHONE for collection of these civil matters.


If you receive any phone calls of this nature, terminate the call as soon as possible as the perpetrators are very convincing and persuading in their tactics.

Sheriff Virts warns citizens not to give credit card, debit card, bank account information or personal information to unknown persons over the phone or the internet. The Sheriff’s Office has seen an increase in fraudulent telephone and computer scams over the previous 5 years which increase during the holiday season.


If you have been a victim of this scam or similar ones notify your bank or credit card company as soon as possible. Once that has been done call the Sheriff’s Office or your local police agency and report the incident.


For further information regarding Identity Theft and Telephone Scams, citizen can go to the Federal Trade Commission website, or to the New York State Office of the Attorney General at

Press Release

December 12, 2014


Crime Victim Notification System Enhanced


A texting option has been added to the Crime Victim Notification System as a key improvement to the existing notification system.


The New York Sheriffs’ Victim Hotline (VINE) has enabled crime victims to receive a text message notification in the event of any change in the custody status of an offender incarcerated in a county correctional facility in New York.


VINE allows crime victims to learn the custody status of an offender, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by telephone or online. This new notification option, “SMS Text Messaging Notification,” adds text messaging to the existing notification options. The additional outbound notification method will be in Spanish and English.


Sheriff Virts states, “Crime victims need and want timely and accurate offender information to ensure your personal safety and that of your loved ones. The addition of texting empowers victims and I encourage you to embrace this new technology”.


In 2014, almost 2.8 million crime victims searched the VINE Database, using either the toll free number (1-888-VINE-4-NY), the VINEMobile app, the Sheriffs Mobile Patrol App (both available for IPhone and Android), or the website ( Also in 2014, over 100,000 crime victims received notification of a change in their offender’s status either by phone or email. It is anticipated that the addition of the text messaging option will result in even more crime victims receiving timely notification of vital offender information. Sheriff Virts welcomes this new feature as the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office continues to seek ways to better serve your public safety needs.


On Friday morning, November 21, 2014, a motorist pulled into the side of a Town of Ontario 10 wheel plow truck on RT 104 & Fisher Road.  There were no injuries but the motorist's vehicle sustained heavy damage.  The front plow blade was scratched. 
I encourage all motorists to use extra caution around snowplows.
