ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. --  The Town of Ramapo will broadcast a special showing of former Rockland County Sheriff Jim Kralik's funeral services, which were officiated by Cardinal Timothy Dolan, on Thursday, Aug. 10 and against Aug. 17.

The special broadcast will be shown at 8 p.m. on Verizon channel 32, Altice channels 77 and 78 and video-streamed on Ramapo's website at www.ramapo.org .

Kralik, who died in July, was also known as "Cowboy Kralik," for his love of horses, served with the department for 49 years, 20 of those as sheriff. Born in Ramsey, New Jersey, the sheriff graduated from Rockland Community College before joining the Sheriff's Office.

A Civil War expert, Kralik was also known for his efforts to beef up the state's anti-terrorism zones by coming up with the color coordination to show the level of potential terror attacks after Sept. 11, 2001. The coding was later picked up and used by state and then national officials.

Kralik worked as chief of patrol for two decades before being elected sheriff in November 1991. He retired from his post in 2011, spending his final years in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, where he owned a horse farm.
