Ontario County Sheriff’s Office beefs up security at Eastview Mall

  • Eastview Mall is expected to see about 1 million shoppers this holiday season.
  • The Ontario County Sheriff’s Office will be beefing up its presence at the mall in Victor, as it usually does this time of year.
  • The Fishers Fire Department and UR Medicine are building awareness of the need to put medical information on cell phones.

VICTOR — If the weather cooperates, an Ontario County sheriff’s deputy may ride to the rescue of someone involved in an emergency or incident at Eastview Mall this holiday season aboard a … bicycle.

Close to 1 million shoppers are expected to walk the aisles of Eastview this holiday shopping season, according to interim Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero, and those shoppers expect to see security and feel safe.

How will the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office do this?

Extra deputies will be assigned to the mall beginning Black Friday, the traditional day-after Thanksgiving shopping day, to supplement the deputies and security officers who work the mall all year-round, Povero said.

Numerous patrols will also be outside the mall, in and around the parking lot to serve as a visual deterrent for car break-ins as well as to be quickly available for slip and fall and other medical emergencies.
