Sheriffs' Winter Training Conference

January 20 January 23

Albany, NY

The 86th Annual Winter Training Conference will take place from Monday, January 20 to Thursday, January 23, 2020 at the Desmond Hotel in Albany, NY. Held each January, the Sheriffs’ Winter Training Conference coincides with the session of the state Legislature and emphasizes on analysis of legislative matters of concern to sheriffs and identifying legislative priorities for the future. Programs also address current topics of importance to sheriffs in law enforcement, corrections, court security and civil matters. Sheriffs also meet personally and informally with many state legislators and top state administrators to discuss important legislative and administrative issues. About 60 businesses from around the country participate in a tradeshow at the conference each winter.
