Nick Layou is a Sergeant with the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office and has served for 17 years. Nick was a Detective for 6 years and investigated numerous physical and sexual abuses cases with child victims. Nick is participating in this years event because he has seen first hand the trauma these victims endure, especially victims that are abused for long periods of time because they don’t know or feel comfortable reporting their abuse. Nick feels that raising awareness and helping prevent physical and sexual child abuse is crucial to our society’s wellbeing. “If I knew that even one child somewhere would be saved from these types of traumatic events because I repelled down a building, I would do it every day for the rest of my life”.
