Message from Sheriff Toulon

Dear Residents of Suffolk County:


As we continue to navigate our county through uncharted waters with the Coronavirus Pandemic, I want to remind you all that Suffolk County is a resilient community. We take care of each other and show compassion on a daily basis. When Superstorm Sandy devastated Suffolk County, our residents came together, supporting those in need and making changes in daily routines. We are, again, being asked to make changes to our everyday lives, including social distancing, working from home, and finding new childcare arrangements. While these changes are disruptive and uncomfortable, they are necessary to protect those in our community who are the most vulnerable.

The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office is prepared to face this challenging time with you. We will continue to provide you with the exceptional service you deserve.  We do, however, ask you to work with us to reduce or mitigate the spread of the virus. Wear a face mask when out in public and when you can't remain 6 feet away from others.  


I encourage you to continue to support the businesses in your community. This pandemic has taken a great toll on our small business community, and they need our support now more than ever.  Finally, take the time to call your friends, check in on neighbors, and communicate with the elderly. Take a walk outside with your family and enjoy the fresh air. This is a time for us all to come together as a community.  Remain calm, wash your hands, and stay positive.  We will get through this crisis together.


-DR. ERROL D. TOULON, Jr., Suffolk County Sheriff




Community Service during the COVID-19 Pandemic

The Sheriff's Office led numerous healthcare hero parades during the height of the coronavirus pandemic.  

We appreciate our healthcare workers and other essential employees.  In addition to the Sheriff's supportive visits, County Correction Officers started a program to make face masks. County inmates are sewing masks on a daily basis and we have distributed thousands throughout Suffolk County.  Learn more by clicking the "I Protect You & You Protect Me" box below.
