The Nassau County Legislature passed a Nassau County Government Law in 1990 to establish a Nassau County Board of Visitors to provide recommendations and report to the Nassau County Sheriff and endowed it with certain powers which form the core of its mission when met with a grievance in writing: A. To investigate, review, or take such other actions as shall be deemed necessary or proper with respect to inmate complaints or grievances regarding the correctional center as shall be called to the Board's attention in writing.
B. To report periodically to the Sheriff and where appropriate, to make such recommendations to the Sheriff as are necessary to fulfill the purposes of the Board's mission as set forth in the Nassau County Charter.
C. To advise the Sheriff in developing programs for improving correctional center services and duties and for coordinating the efforts of correctional center officials in respect to improving conditions of inmate safety and education with regard to grievances in writing.
Address for the Board as follows:
