DuBois longest serving sheriff in Orange County history

DuBois: "The sheriff's office is
full of resources ..."

GOSHEN – Orange County Sheriff Carl DuBois, who was just sworn in for a fifth term in office, is the longest serving sheriff in the county.

He has 16 years under his belt and was re-elected unopposed for another four-year term.

During DuBois’ tenure, the Orange County Drug Task Force was formed to work with the district attorney’s office and local police in clamping down on drug crime.

“It’s a resource we provide for the local for the local municipalities and they take advantage of it, just as our Special Operations Group, as our K-9,” DuBois said. “The sheriff’s office is full of resources that the local municipalities can take advantage of because, obviously, the smaller municipalities cannot afford something like that in their budget, so they look to the sheriff’s office to supplement their enforcement efforts and obviously we answer the call and go there and take care of business.”

The sheriff’s office also houses ICE detainees and since that began about 10 years ago, DuBois said the county has earned just under $90 million by providing the service.
