Orleans County Courthouse Dome Illuminated Blue in Memory of Sgt. Sanfratello

The dome of the Orleans County Courthouse will be illuminated blue in memory of Genesee County Sheriff’s Sgt. Thomas Sanfratello, who died in the line of duty early Sunday morning during an incident at Batavia Downs last weekend.

“All of us mourn the death of Sgt. Sanfratello and this is our community’s way of recognizing his bravery and commitment to public safety during his 32 years of servcie,” said Legislator Merle “Skip” Draper, Chairman of the Public Safety Committee.

The dome will be illuminated blue for one week, beginning tonight.  Sgt. Sanfratello’s funeral will be held Saturday at Genesee Community College.

“We send our deepest condolences to his family and to all his fellow law enforcement officials, especially those in the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office, who are devastated by the loss of their colleague,” Lynne Johnson, Chairman of the Orleans County Legislature.
