  • A Proud Tradition
    Updated On: Feb 04, 2011


    Deputy Sheriff's in Suffolk County carry on a proud tradition of law enforcement, In 1670 the Governor of New York officially appointed the first sheriff as the principle law enforcement officer in the County. The office became an elected position in 1821.
     The Sheriff is responsible for maintaining sufficient Deputies to carry out his duties. Deputies were appointed by the Sheriff until 1969 when the title became a civil service position.
     Today Suffolk County Deputy Sheriffs continue to serve as police officers (NYSCPL1.20,34.(b)), drawing their authority to enforce both criminal and civil law from the New York State Constitution and the Suffolk County Charter.
