June 19, 2017

Orange County Sheriff Carl DuBois has once again put his full support behind Orange County District Attorney David M. Hoovler in his bid for re-election.

“David has done an incredible job as the district attorney and has upheld the promises he made from the very beginning,” DuBois. “I am proud to put my support behind such a strong leader in law enforcement who has earned a solid record of proven results.”

Since taking office three and a half years ago, Hoovler has:

  • Increased narcotics prosecutions by 100%+*;
  • Increased welfare fraud prosecutions by 1000%+*;
  • Recovered $1.4 million in fraudulently obtained government fun(4th highest recovery rate in NYS);
  • Developed a Community Affairs Bureau to build community trust; and
  • Launched roughly a dozen community initiatives to combat bullying, domestic violence, labor violations, truancies, elder abuse, opioids and heroin, underage drinking, and sexual assault

“We outlined an aggressive improvement strategy when I took office, and I’m proud to say that with the help of law enforcement leaders like Carl, we’ve delivered on our promises,” Hoovler said. “We’re staying focused on the next phase of improvements, which will include enhanced prosecution of major drug traffickers, the development of innovative treatment options, a continued focus on fraud cases that affect taxpayers’ wallets, and the development of a crime analysis center in our county.”
