Ulster County Sheriff Juan Figueroa

WAMC, Allison Dunne

Ulster County Sheriff Juan Figueroa is seven months into his job. He recently spoke with WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne about his biggest challenges, including how his department is tackling the opioid crisis.

The Ulster County executive signed an executive order Wednesday concerning cooperation with federal immigration officials. The order was prompted, in part, by planned deportation raids by ICE.
