New York State Police Investigators Association Elects New President and Secretary/Treasurer
Senior Investigator Timothy Dymond will take over as President and William Sheets will serve as Secretary/Treasurer
Albany NY – The New York State Police Investigators Association (NYSPIA) announced today the election of a new President and Secretary/Treasurer. Senior Investigator Timothy Dymond will serve as President of the 1200-member union representing Senior Investigators and Investigators within the Bureau of Criminal Investigation of the New York State Police.
William Sheets will serve in the dual role of Secretary/Treasurer.
“The dialogue around law enforcement over the last year has grown increasingly heated and negative, and that played a big part in my decision to run for President of NYSPIA,” said Dymond. “I am incredibly proud of the work that the members of NYSPIA do every day to make New York State safer for its 19 million residents. From narcotics, human trafficking, counter terrorism and cybercrimes and many other things in between, New York State Police Investigators work largely out of the public eye getting violent, dangerous criminals off the streets. My goal for the Presidency will be to help highlight the work of our members, and to represent their interests as part of the public dialogue around how law enforcement can continue to be a force for good as it continues to evolve.”
Dymond began his career in law enforcement with the New York Police Department (NYPD) in 2005 working patrol in the 52nd precinct in the Bronx. He transferred to the Town of Fallsburg Police Department in 2007 where he patrolled rural Sullivan County. In 2008 Dymond joined the New York State Police as a uniformed Trooper in Sullivan County, a position he held until 2012 when he was subsequently promoted to Investigator and assigned to Middletown barracks. In 2014 Dymond transferred to Community Narcotics Enforcement Team (CNET) working as an undercover officer and ran several long-term wiretap investigations throughout the Hudson Valley. During his time working with CNET, Dymond was the case agent for the Bread, White and Blues case which was a large-scale operation in 2018 that took down a major drug distribution ring in Orange and Rockland Counties.
Finally, in 2019 he was promoted to Senior Investigator and assigned to Troop F which encompasses the counties west of the Hudson River including Rockland, Orange, Sullivan, Ulster and Greene Counties. In that role Dymond served on the Violent Gang Narcotics Enforcement Team (VGNET).
Dymond grew up in the town of Neversink in Sullivan County and attended Sacred Heart University in Fairfield Connecticut where he received a bachelor’s degree in exercise science. Dymond is the fifth President to represent the union since its inception in 1994. He replaces outgoing NYSPIA President Chris Quick who retired in August. Both Dymond and Sheets will serve three-year terms.
William Sheets began his career in law enforcement nearly fourteen years ago, in Troop B, at the Massena State Police barracks. After seven years of road work he was promoted to the Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) and continued to work out of Massena where he had developed relationships with Troopers as well as many Federal, County and local law enforcement officers. In August 2015, Sheets transferred to Troop E where he is currently assigned as a back-room Investigator working out of Canandaigua. Prior to joining the New York State Police, Sheets worked for General Motors as a Technical Advisor. He held supervisory responsibilities within the manufacturing facility, which included working closely with the United Auto Workers Union (UAW) on labor and contract disputes.
“I appreciate the confidence my fellow NYSPIA members have shown in me by electing me Secretary/Treasurer of our union,” said William Sheets. “I intend to bring professionalism, honesty and integrity to the role, and whether at the bargaining table or in public will represent the union to the best of my abilities.”
Sheets will begin his three-year term immediately.
