The New York State Police continue to investigate leads in the search for two escaped inmates from the Clinton Correctional Facility.
Leads continue to be generated along the Clinton and Essex County border and residents will notice an increased police presence in this area.
Members of law enforcement will be going door to door in and around the surrounding area and checking homes and seasonal residences. If members of the public see anything unusual upon arriving at their residence or seasonal homes, they are asked to contact law enforcement immediately.
The State Police have deployed all available assets in an effort to ensure the safety of the public.
At this time, more than 440 corrections and law enforcement officers are involved in the region.
In addition to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, the FBI, U.S. Marshals and U.S. Customs and Border Protection are also assisting the State Police.
Several employees, both uniform and civilian of the Clinton Correctional Facility have been interviewed in the investigation, but no arrests have been made.
We personally ask for the public’s cooperation and vigilance throughout this investigation.
The public should make no hesitation to report any suspicious activity; that includes any sign of a trespass, burglary or vehicle larceny.
