[ARCHIVED] County Executive Curran and Sheriff Fludd Announce Sheriff’s Retirement

Nassau County Executive Laura Curran said, “It is bittersweet to announce the retirement of Nassau County Sheriff Vera Fludd after more than 35 years of service to Nassau County. Since 1987, Sheriff Fludd has dedicated her career to serving and protecting our communities with grace and integrity. I am grateful that in 2017 she delayed her retirement in order to serve as Undersheriff, Acting Sheriff, and ultimately as Sheriff. In addition to bringing in the largest class of recruits in over a decade, Sheriff Fludd was instrumental in incorporating Mental Health First Aid Training into the recruit training curriculum, and equipping staff with the Narcan training and prevention-kits needed to save lives. As the first woman and first African American to serve as Nassau County Sheriff, Vera Fludd has been a trailblazer who paved a path for others to follow. She has always made safety her first focus, while striving to promote professionalism among all her staff members. I join many others in celebrating her distinguished career, and I thank her for her extraordinary service to the people of Nassau County.”

Nassau County Sheriff Vera Fludd said, “After over three decades of service to Nassau County, I have decided to retire as Nassau County Sheriff at the end of January 2020. My goal for this Department has always been to move forward as respectfully, responsibly and as professionally as we possibly can. My hope for my staff is that they continue to strive for excellence in everything they do, always putting safety first. It has been an absolute honor and privilege to serve this County. I thank County Executive Laura Curran for giving me this opportunity to serve as Sheriff of Nassau County.”
