Akshar to Become Broome County Undersheriff

Kathy Whyte/WNBF News

Frederick Akshar has been named the next Broome County undersheriff.

Sheriff David Harder announced the appointment of Captain Akshar to the post, which has been held by Alex Minor for just over five years.

Minor last week said he was retiring as undersheriff, effective June 5. Akshar, who has been with the sheriff’s office for 13 years, will become undersheriff on June 8.

In addition to the selection of Akshar to be undersheriff, Harder announced Lieutenant Kathleen Newcomb is being promoted to captain. Newcomb has been with the county agency for 23 years.

Sergeant Benjamin Harting, who has been in charge of the sheriff’s office training division, is being promoted to lieutenant.

Replacing Harting as training division sergeant will be deputy Sam Davis.
