CANTON — St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin M. Wells and the members of his civil division staff were honored Monday at a meeting of the Board of Legislators for obtaining reaccreditation.

Only 24 of the state’s 62 counties have qualified. The designation comes on top of accreditation of the sheriff’s corrections and criminal divisions, said Peter R. Kehoe, executive director of the New York State Sheriffs’ Association.

Accreditation of the civil division meant meeting 124 individual standards, all of which were exceeded by the county, he said.
