Legislature Recognizes Retiring Cornell Police Chief Kathy Zoner

Tuesday, March 5, 2019

The Legislature presented a special proclamation recognizing and thanking retiring Cornell Police Chief Kathy Zoner for her 27 years of service to the Cornell University Community and Tompkins County residents.  Chief Zoner began working at Cornell in 1991 as a dispatcher, and steadily rose through the ranks of the department, in 2009 becoming the first woman to serve as the Cornell Police Chief.  The resolution recognizes Chief Zoner’s many contributions to Cornell and the Tompkins County community, noting that Zoner “has dedicated her career to the safe of the Cornell Community and has developed an exceptional police force that is diverse and inclusive,” serving as “a steady, clear-sighted leader.” The resolution expresses the Legislature’s deepest appreciation to Zoner for her 27 years of dedicated service to Cornell University and the residents of Tompkins County. 

Sheriff Derek Osborne also joined in recognizing and thanking Chief Zoner, and presenting her a recognition plaque.  “You were truly a partner to the Sheriff’s Office,” Sheriff Osborne said.
