DOWNLOAD THE BROCHURES Correction Officer I (English) Correction Officer I (Spanish) Qualifications Salary & Benefits Physical Agility Exam Academy Training Hiring Process Civilian Opportunities The Divisions of the Suffolk County Sheriff's Office Corrections Division The Corrections Division of the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office is comprised of more than 806 Correction Officers who staff two county correctional facilities. The Corrections Division and its facilities are overseen by the Warden and his Deputy Wardens. Both facilities house minimum, medium, and maximum-security male and female inmates. ​ The current Suffolk County Correctional Facility in Riverhead was built in 1969 and has undergone multiple additions and improvements over the years, resulting in its current capacity of 840 inmates. The facility has linear and podular housing units, a state-of-the-art medical/ dental/ mental health unit, a rehabilitation unit, and a visiting section. The Choose Your Path program for young men is housed at the Riverhead Facility. ​ The Suffolk County Correctional Facility in Yaphank was built in 1961 and has also undergone multiple improvements and additions over the years, including a state-of-the-art addition in 2013 which added six podular housing units, modern medical/dental/mental health, visiting, and booking units, and renovations of existing housing areas. The current capacity at Yaphank is 976 inmates. The Sheriff's Addiction Treatment Program (SATP), the Veterans Reentry Program, the 55 and Older Pod, and the Choose to Thrive Program for female inmates are all housed at the Yaphank Facility. This facility also houses female inmates with their newborn babies in a fully equipped secure nursery. ​ An increased focus on inmate rehabilitation accompanied by the reduction in inmate levels due to NYS bail reform legislation has created a unique opportunity to increase the number of programs available to inmates in the custody of the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office. The emphasis the Sheriff’s Office places on correctional rehabilitative programming has evolved over the last several years, with Correction Officers increasingly adopting a mindset that places value on rehabilitation and reentry work. While many non-profit organizations work in collaboration with the correctional facility to provide services to current and former inmates, Correction Officers have developed and now run many unique correctional programs. ​ Police Division ​ The Chief Deputy Sheriff oversees the Police Division. It includes the Enforcement Bureau, Headquarters Bureau, District Court Bureau, Family Court Bureau, Criminal Investigations Bureau, a Special Operations Bureau, and the Pistol License Bureau. ​ The major responsibilities of the Headquarters Bureau are the transportation and security of inmates outside the correctional facility, general law enforcement services to the public, and support assistance to other law enforcement agencies. They have a Canine Unit and a Marine Unit which patrols the East End of Long Island. ​ The District Court Bureau is tasked with the secure transportation of all inmates and detainees remanded to the custody of the Sheriff by any of the twenty-two courts working out of the Cohalan Court Complex in Central Islip. The Bureau oversees the main detention center housed at the 1st District Court complex and is responsible for the care and custody of new arrestees in the five western townships of Suffolk County as well as Suffolk County Correctional Facility inmates returning for court appearances. The District Court Bureau works closely with law enforcement partners of the Sheriff’s Office, defense attorneys, court personnel, and the District Attorney’s Office to ensure the court process proceeds efficiently. The Bureau transported a total of 24,544 prisoners in 2019. ​ The Criminal Investigations Bureau is tasked with all criminal investigations within the confines of the Suffolk County Correctional Facilities. These include cases involving prison contraband, assaults, violation of orders of protection, death investigations, etc. In addition, the Bureau handles all felony cases developed by Deputy Sheriffs, serious motor vehicle crashes, aviation crashes at Gabreski Airport, and drug investigations, including undercover surveillance. The investigators within the Bureau undergo a multitude of training that includes death investigation, crime scene investigation, evidence handling, drug field testing, and motor vehicle collision investigation. Responsibilities for investigators include case management, evidence collection, arrest and warrant processing, interviews and statements, and crime scene management which includes fingerprint processing, photography, sketching, and scene narratives. Investigators from both the Police and Corrections divisions continually work with other agencies and on task forces such as the DEA and Heroin Task Force, to uncover crime in Suffolk County and the region. ​ The Enforcement Bureau is comprised of the Civil Enforcement Section and Special Operations Section. Deputy Sheriffs assigned to the Civil Enforcement Section process property executions for enforcement against real and personal property, income executions, warrants to remove, warrants of arrest, orders of seizure, orders of attachment, service of D.W.I. forfeiture summonses for the County Attorney, enforcement of Health Commissioner orders, and all other actions issued out of any court in the county. The Special Operations Section performs a variety of duties including patrolling and responding to calls for service at the Suffolk County Gabreski Airport and other county facilities and traffic enforcement. ​ The Sheriff’s Office Warrant Squad executes court-ordered Writs of Assistance in family offense and abuse and neglect cases, transports certain juveniles charged with crimes to court, and returns them to where they are housed. Deputy Sheriff Investigators assigned to the Warrant Squad execute warrants of arrest in both family court and criminal court cases. Investigators also coordinate with the county’s Child Support Enforcement Bureau to locate parents who have failed to pay court-ordered child support and assist police agencies in tracking down Fugitives from Justice. ​ The Domestic Violence Bureau serves orders of protection that are created by the Family and Criminal Court systems. During the service of orders, Deputy Sheriffs are often ordered to seize firearms and other weapons in the protection of the defendants and respondents. The Domestic Violence Bureau served a total of 3,786 orders of protection in 2019 and 4,023 in 2020. It also seized a total of 282 firearms in 2019 and 378 in 2020. In 2019, Deputy Sheriffs were tasked with the service of Emergency Risk Protection Orders (ERPO). An ERPO is a court order issued when a person may be dangerous to him/herself or others. An ERPO prohibits a person from purchasing or possessing guns and requires the person to surrender any guns he/she already owns or possesses. The Domestic Violence Bureau also investigates cases of individuals who attempt to purchase a firearm in violation of an order of protection and arrests individuals charged with violating orders of protection and those with family offense-related warrants. ​ The Special Operations Bureau is comprised of the Air Support Unit, Honor Guard, Stop-DWI Team, Bike Patrol, Emergency Management, Haz-Mat Decon Strike Team, Homeland Security, and Tactical Units that include the Sheriff’s Response Team and the Tactical Rifle and Containment Team. ​ The Pistol License Bureau is tasked with the issuance of all pistol licenses for the five East End towns in Suffolk County.

  • Data Driven Justice | Suffolk County Sheriff's Office

    Data Driven Justice Data Driven Justice Community Portrait: A Conversation with Sheriff Errol Toulon, Jr. of Suffolk County, N.Y. This Data-Driven Justice Community Portrait is the fifth in a series highlighting individuals who are championing cross-systems collaboration and data sharing within their jurisdictions to respond to the needs of frequent utilizers of justice, health and human services systems. This interview was edited for brevity. ​ Dr. Errol D. Toulon, Jr. is the Sheriff of Suffolk County , New York on Long Island. He was born and raised in the Bronx in New York City, and his father and brother were both wardens on Rikers Island . As such, Toulon learned about the criminal justice system from a very early age; in 1982 he joined the New York City Department of Correction where he had a 22-year career in uniform serving in various positions in the Emergency Service Unit, Firearms & Tactics Unit and Compliance Unit. He retired as a captain due to health reasons. In 2014, he returned to the Department of Correction as the Deputy Commissioner of Operations overseeing the Intelligence Unit, Training Academy, Applicant Investigations Unit, Emergency Management and Compliance Units. Taking office in January 2018, Sheriff Toulon is the county’s first African American person to be elected to a non-judicial countywide office. He received his bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Monroe College, a master’s degree in Business Administration and a doctorate in Educational Administration from Dowling College. ​ Q: Where do you get your passion for helping people involved in the criminal justice system? ​ When I was a child, my father told me that his job as a warden was about rehabilitating people who were incarcerated; however, he also used the same moniker of “bad guys” that needed to be in jail. When I was a captain on Rikers Island, I would often tour our various facilities, talk to the people in our custody and find out why they became incarcerated and if they experienced substance abuse and/or mental health issues. I believe 85 percent of men and women that come into our facilities are individuals that have mental health and substance abuse issues, or they just made some poor choices. Many come from areas and families that experience multi-generational trauma due to community and family violence. ​ When I became sheriff, I used this experience to affect change in my community. We can assist those men and women with the treatment they need and can connect them with resources in the community to continue care post incarceration. I am extremely passionate about ensuring people continue to receive this level of care while involved with the justice system. ​ Q: What are some of the initiatives you’ve started to help people with mental illness and/or substance use disorders involved in the justice system? ​ Here in Suffolk County, we created The Sheriff's Transition and Reentry Team (START), where we work with the judicial system, The Legal Aid Society and The Criminal Bar Association to offer case management and support to help address the needs of people in our custody and upon release. ​ The START Resource Center is located at our Yaphank Correctional Facility and staffed by correctional officers. In our jails, we start reentry on day one of incarceration. We interview inmates at jail admission and have them complete a packet of information where we assess their needs and life goals. Officers and our partners support people with substance abuse treatment, education, job and resume assistance, social services enrollment, driver's license and identification issues, transportation, food, housing and clothing. We also provide referrals to community-based services upon release. We help people create resumes and conduct job searches and provide business attire for job interviews. We also provide transportation for interviews, as transportation can be a huge barrier in Suffolk County. We have identified employers who are willing to hire a formerly incarcerated individual and work with social services agencies in various communities to connect people to health care and continue treatment. We are trying to address structural barriers to reentry, and the staff has truly built trust among our community members involved in the justice system. In fact, with START, more than 350 people have returned to our resource center or reached out for further assistance who are no longer involved in the justice system. ​ We also have a serious addiction treatment program and are very much involved in the drug court. We continue to talk to judges and defense attorneys on how we can improve. We can always do better, and I push my staff so that our office can mitigate crime before it occurs and reduce our jail population. ​ Lastly, we partnered with Stony Brook University School of Social Welfare on our family reunification project to bring graduate-level interns to the jail to work with inmates and their families to improve relationships while people are incarcerated and when they are released. We know that family involvement can be key to a person’s success once they are no longer in our custody. Q: Who have been some of your most valuable partners in this work? ​ We have worked with many community partners who have helped identify individuals with mental health or substance abuse issues. We created a satellite facility partnering with one of our service providers, Spin the Yard , to assist with transportation and networking with other programs to make sure people are receiving the assistance they need. ​ In addition, since many of our female inmates are victims of human trafficking and have substance use disorders, The Empowerment Collaborative of Long Island is another important community partner, particularly for women and children. We also partner with many local advocacy groups and monitor data to understand where in Suffolk County there are hotspots of people suffering from mental health and substance abuse issues and how to best address it. We also use data analysis in our schools through a program called Deconstructing the Prison Pipeline , which seeks to improve policy and craft initiatives to prevent youth from getting involved in the justice system by helping to identify root causes of youth delinquency. ​ Q: How is your office working with the community to address race equity for people involved in the justice system? ​ First, I am always looking at data to help us understand the problem. As Sheriff, I have made it a priority for our office to use data to identify community members at risk of incarceration. We focus on factors such as demographics and ethnicity, education level and employment type. Do they have children? With these variables, we see where certain trends are occurring and can drill down to the root causes of some of the issues that our residents face before and after incarceration. ​ Since last year (2020), we started a training course for fair and impartial policing not only for our deputy sheriffs and correctional officers, but also civilian personnel. We have implemented customer service training for sworn and civilian personnel that are interacting with the public. I do not, however, believe that a training course will really allow us to understand our own biases, so we have made it incumbent upon our supervisors to reinforce this training throughout our daily work. Since it is very difficult to change someone’s inherent views in just a couple training sessions, we conduct them regularly to at least recognize these biases and reinforce the need for change. ​ There needs to be a basic understanding of respect from law enforcement to the people in our community and those that are incarcerated. The death of George Floyd was a tragedy, and law enforcement needs to find a balance when interacting with the community between who is an actual threat and who may be experiencing a mental health or substance abuse crisis. Q: What more can Suffolk County do to help people living with mental illness and/or substance use disorders? ​ What is needed not only for Suffolk County, but our nation, is investment in social services. People need help before they interact with law enforcement. By the time someone is incarcerated, the individual has most likely shown many red flags. The pandemic has caused a mental health and substance abuse crisis in this country and with so much trauma and disruption in our society today, the government needs to focus on increasing funding in our communities for social services. This would certainly lead to fewer negative interactions with law enforcement and less incarceration. We may be able to save not only a lot more lives but change people's lives so that families and communities are safer. Q: What inspires you about this work? ​ I'm a two-time cancer survivor, so I probably shouldn't be here. My second battle was with pancreatic cancer and it has made me feel that I'm here for a purpose. I was a deputy commissioner at Rikers Island for 25 years and I didn't have the direct impact that I have now. I have been a resident of Suffolk County now for 31 years and I can see the impact I have on my staff and the individuals that are incarcerated in the community. This is what gives me joy because I can affect real change and help people. It motivates me every day. ​ Q: Do you have any recommendations for other communities or advice for your peers? ​ You can never have enough partners in this, whether it's NACo or law enforcement agencies, community partners or community members. I engage with our community to understand what various populations in Suffolk County are dealing with so I can understand what we need to do and identify potential and changing trends. As a sheriff, it is important to talk to law enforcement agencies and community partners throughout the country to see what they are dealing with and how to best prepare. Finally, humility is crucial. You need to talk to everyone and can never have enough engagement with people. There is much to learn from other people’s experiences. NACo would like to thank Sheriff Errol Toulon for speaking with us about his and Suffolk County’s efforts. He can be reached at Suffolk_Sheriff@suffolkcountyny.gov . ​ This community portrait was created with support from Arnold Ventures as part of Data-Driven Justice , a project that aims to support local jurisdictions in using data to better align resources to respond to people who are frequent utilizers of justice, health and human services systems.

  • Policing Division | Suffolk County Sheriff's Office

    POLICE DIVISION The Police Division of the Suffolk County Sheriff's Office ​includes the Enforcement Bureau, the Headquarters Bureau, the District Court Bureau, the Family Court Bureau (Warrant Squad and the Domestic Violence Unit), the Criminal Investigation Bureau, The Special Operations Bureau, and Pistol Licensing. The Police Division is overseen by the Chief Deputy Sheriff. Headquarters Pistol Licensing Domestic Violence Civil Enforcement First District Court Warrant Squad Special Operations Criminal Investigations Headquarters The Headquarters Bureau, operating twenty-four hours a day, is the largest section of the Enforcement Division. The Bureau is located at the lower level of the Criminal Courts Building, 200 Center Drive, Riverhead, New York. The Headquarters Bureau is staffed with one Captain, two Lieutenants, nine Sergeants and eighty-four Deputies. The Sergeants and Deputies work various shifts to provide 24 hours a day, 7 days per week coverage. ​ The six major responsibilities of the Headquarters Bureau are: transportation and security of inmates outside the Correctional Facility, operation of a feeder detention center, 24/7 per imeter security of the Sheriff's facilities, to provide general law enforcement services to the public, county agencies and support assistance to other law enforcement agencies, K-9 patrol and response, Marine Patrol of the East End of Long Island. ​ ​ Domestic Violence The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office Domestic Violence Unit is responsible for the service and enforcement of orders of protection throughout Suffolk County.

Acquiring an order of protection is an important step in the fight against domestic violence. Having it served promptly gives the victim an important tool to protect themselves. The Domestic Violence Unit also continues to aggressively seek out and arrest those persons with family offense related warrants. Having these persons in custody and brought before a judge reduces the likelihood that they will abuse or assault their victim again. ​ The Domestic Violence Unit works closely with various domestic violence agencies both on the private and county level to offer or assist victims of domestic violence. ​ ​ First District Court The primary function of the First District Court Bureau is the secure transportation and housing of all inmates and detainees to ensure their presence at required court proceedings. These proceedings include arraignment, hearings, trials, CPL 180.80 process, County Court appearances, Grand Jury appearances, and to answer all misdemeanor crimes committed in the five western townships of Suffolk County. This Bureau is also tasked with the secure transportation of all inmates and detainees remanded to the custody of the Sheriff by any of the twenty-two courtrooms working out of the Cohalan Court Complex in Central Islip. ​ The specific functions of this Bureau are as follows: provide the secure transportation of all inmates to and from the Suffolk County Correctional Facilities and the First District Court Building; perform court-ordered transportation of inmates who are housed in various out-of-county facilities such as Nassau County Correctional Facility and Rikers Island Correctional Facilities; provide transportation and process paperwork for inmates destined to County Court, Supreme Court, and Family Court; and work in conjunction with outside police agencies, Suffolk County Correction Officers, New York State Court Officers, etc. so the court process may proceed efficiently. ​ The Bureau is also responsible for police liaison activities between the Sheriff’s Office and the Courts. Such liaison activities include the handling, oversight, and di stribution of Deputy Sheriff arrest packages to the proper court personnel. All supporting deposition requests originating from Deputy Sheriff vehicle and traffic summonses and arrests are processed through this Bureau. ​ ​ Special Operations ​ The Special Operations Bureau of the Police Division includes Investigative Services, Task Force Personnel, Homeland Security, Emergency Management, Tactical Operations, The Honor Guard, The SPIDRE DWI Team, the Marine Unit, The Canine (K9) Unit, Asset Forfeiture, and Air Support. ​ ​ Warrant Squad ​ The Suffolk County Sheriff's Office Warrant Bureau is located in the Family Court Building of the John P. Cohalan Court Complex located at 400 Carleton Avenue, Central Islip, New York. The Sheriff's Warrant Bureau derives its legal authority from Article XVII of the Suffolk County Charter, pursuant to Article 8, §400 and Article 17, §650 of the New York State County Law, New York State Family Court Act and Article 1.20 of the New York State Criminal Procedure Law. ​ The Warrant Bureau consists of six sections, each with distinctive areas of responsibility Family Offense/Abuse & Neglect Section Juvenile Section. General Services Section Sheriff's Warrant Apprehension Program (Child Support) Criminal Warrants Section ​ Each Section has Deputy Sheriff Investigators whose primary responsibilities are the tasks of that Section, however all Deputy Sheriff Investigators work with each other to insure that assignments of higher priority are carried out in that manner. ​ The Warrant Bureau, on a regular basis, assists all police agencies in Suffolk County, including district, town and villages, the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, as well as Nassau County and New York City Police and Sheriff Departments. The Warrant Bureau receives requests from many other New York State agencies regarding individual wanted by those agencies who currently reside in Suffolk County. We also receive Fugitive from Justice Warrants from various agencies throughout the United States. Individuals who are arrested as a Fugitive from Justice are arraigned in Suffolk County courts and held until the wanting agency arranges inmate transportation. The Warrant Bureau also provides assistance to US DOJ Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) with the execution of search warrants, the United States Marshal Service (USMS) Felony Task Force, with manpower provided for fugitive warrant sweeps. ​ Members of the Warrant Bureau are assigned to various ancillary commands in the Sheriff’s Office. These commands include; Marine Bureau, Dive Team, Bicycle Squad, Sheriff’s Tactical Response Team, Honor Guard, Sheriff’s Executive Security Detail and the Motorcycle Unit. ​ The Warrant Bureau is tasked with the transportation of certain juveniles, who are charged with various crimes, to and from the courts of Suffolk County and the locations where those juveniles are housed. The Warrant Bureau transports all Juvenile Offenders (JOs), those individuals less than 16, charged with a designated felony and Adolescent offenders (AOs), those individuals aged 16 and 17 that are charged with any felony. ​ ​ Criminal Investigations ​ The Criminal Investigations Bureau was organized in October 1981 to investigate and prosecute any and all crimes committed within any of the Sheriff's Office Facilities or against any of the office’s members. This unit will also conduct any criminal investigations as directed by the Sheriff. ​ The Criminal Investigations Bureau, C.I.B., coordinates and acts as liaison between the Sheriff's Office and all other law enforcement agencies. C.I.B. conducts all criminal and potentially criminal investigations as well as all attempted suicide and death investigations that relate to persons placed in the custody of the Sheriff of Suffolk County or that relate to incidents, events or circumstances involving operations or functions being conducted by Sheriff’s Office personnel. ​ C.I.B. handles felony arrests made by members of the Sheriff's Office to ensure that all court paperwork is in the correct format and completed to proper legal standards. This Bureau evaluates information and conducts investigations into allegations of criminal activities within the geographical area of Suffolk County as well as the confines of the counties correctional facilities. Many criminal investigations conducted by this bureau result in the arrest and prosecution of individuals introducing or attempting to introduce contraband into Sheriff's Office facilities. During the course of these investigations all other criminal activity suspected is thoroughly investigated and acted upon accordingly. ​ C.I.B. works in conjunction with the District Attorney's Office in preparing and presenting cases to the Grand Jury. All evidence relating to Sheriff's Office arrests are processed through this bureau. C.I.B. is also responsible for the safe escort of high security inmates to and from various correctional facilities, courts and other locations outside the boundaries of the correctional facilities. C.I.B. also provides manpower to other law enforcement agencies, when requested, to assist in various task force operations.

  • Orders of Protection | Suffolk County Sheriff's Office

    Orders of Protection Orders of protection are issued by a judge to protect you from another person who is abusing, harassing, threatening, and/or intimidating you, or has committed a crime against you. Orders of protection are commonly issued in cases involving domestic violence, but may also be issued under other circumstances. ​ Types of Orders of Protection Family Court Order of Protection: A Family Court Order of Protection is issued as part of a civil proceeding to stop violence that is occurring within the family or within an intimate relationship. You may begin the process of obtaining a Family Court order of protection by filling out the Family Offense Petition . In order to obtain an order of protection in Family Court, your relationship to the other person involved must fall in at least one of the following categories: Current or former spouse. Someone with whom you have a child in common. A family member to whom you are related by blood or marriage. Someone with whom you have, or have had, an 'intimate relationship.' (An intimate relationship does not necessarily mean a sexual relationship. Family Court will consider several factors such as, but not limited to: "how often you see each other or how long you have known each other.") Criminal Court Order of Protection: An Assistant District Attorney may request a criminal court order of protection on your behalf. You do not need to have an intimate or personal relationship with the person charged with the offense. The judge decides whether to issue an order of protection, as well as the terms and conditions. Supreme Court Order of Protection: A Supreme Court order of protection can be issued as part of ongoing divorce or criminal proceeding. If you are involved in an ongoing divorce case and wish to request an order of protection, you must make a written request by Motion or Order to Show Cause, or an oral request at a court appearance. If an attorney is representing you in the case, the attorney can make the written or oral request on your behalf. The judge decides whether to issue an order of protection, as well as the terms and conditions. Orders of protection may be temporary or final: Temporary Order of Protection: Issued the same day that a complainant files for an order of protection and lasts only until the next court date, at which point it may be extended. Final Order of Protection: A final order of protection is issued when the case results in a conviction (whether by plea or after a trial) in criminal court or in family court after a judge finds that a family offense was committed. Orders of protection may be full or limited: Full Order of Protection: A full order of protection means that the subject of the order of protection must stay completely away from you, your home, job and school, and must not abuse, harass, or threaten you. Limited Order of Protection: A limited order of protection allows the subject of the order of protection to maintain contact with you. However, the subject cannot abuse, harass, or threaten you. Serving Family or Supreme Court Orders of Protection For legal reasons, you may not serve your own order of protection. Orders of protection will be served in court by the judge if the defendant/respondent is present. ​ The Suffolk County Sheriff's Office may serve your Order of Protection. This service is free of charge. Once the Sherriff's Office has served the respondent, they will provide you with a signed statement that says the service has been completed. If the Sheriff's office is unable to deliver the order of protection after several attempts, they must provide you with a signed statement that includes the dates and times of each attempt. ​ An order of protection does not guarantee your safety. It is important that you have a safety plan should the person violate the order of protection. Violating an Order of Protection It is a crime to violate a temporary or final order of protection. If an individual violates the order of protection, you should report it to the police. In an emergency call 911 and the individual will be arrested. In a non-emergency, you may file a violation of the order of protection by going to a police precinct. If you have a Family Court order of protection, you may go to Family Court and file the violation, you may report the violation to the police or choose to do both. If you file a violation of the order of protection only in Family Court, the subject who violated the order might not be arrested. Learn more about an order of protection . ​ ​ ​ Extreme Risk Protective Order Please be advised that effective August 24, 2019 the NYS Supreme Courts may begin issuing an Extreme Risk Protective Order when a person may be dangerous to themselves or others. Please see the New York Courts website regarding how an order may be obtained. ​ ​ An Extreme Risk Protective Order (ERPO) is a court order issued when a person may be dangerous to themselves or others. An ERPO prohibits a person from purchasing or possessing guns and requires the person to surrender any guns they already own or possess. An ERPO can also direct the police to search a person, premises or a vehicle for guns and remove them. An ERPO case may be started by a district attorney, a police officer, a school official, or a member of the person’s family or household. It is a civil case. ERPO cases have no criminal charges or penalties. ​ The petitioner is the person filing the ERPO application with the court.

Our Response to COVID-19 and How are Protecting County Inmates, Staff and Visitors We have changed the way newly arriving inmates are housed during the first 14 days of incarceration. Dedicated housing for new inmates has been set up in Yaphank to allow for greater social distancing and ongoing medical evaluation to prevent the spread of the virus to the general population. A strict protocol of proper hand-washing, around the clock sanitizing of both the Yaphank and Riverhead facilities, enforcement of social distancing and mask wearing have all played a part in maintaining minimal opportunities for the virus to spread. County inmates have also stepped up to help prevent the spread of coronavirus inside and outside the jail by sewing thousands of face coverings for widespread distribution. ​ We are all in this together, and by maintaining order and sanitation within the jail, we will continue to keep your loved ones and visitors safe during this difficult time. ​ ​ Visiting Idetification Requirements Other

    ABOUT MISSION THE CONFERENCE ACCOMMODATIONS REGISTER BELOW Top To develop, equip and empower the next generation of executive leaders. Our Mission While the last several years have been about surviving - change was forced, extreme, and reactive. Out of all this change came something incredible - we learned that without collaborative, flexible and empowered leadership - our organizations would collapse. As we are reinventing our organizations, shifting leadership and going into a new era of how we serve our organizations - training, empowering and equipping leaders is a necessity. SEE OUR PREVIOUS CONFERENCE SPEAKERS >> Mission WHY The Power of High-Quality Executive Leadership Training Our annual, 2-day Executive Leadership Conference boasts the top speakers from around the country - who aim to inspire, educate, equip and motivate our members to reach their highest potential. Why why THE STATISTICS 83 83% of organizations believe it’s important to develop leaders at every level of the company. Developing leaders internally is more economically sound and makes for a more robust company 35 35% of American workers put company culture as a priority when job hunting - showing the importance of a quality work environment with good leadership at the helm. 5 Only 5% of businesses have implemented leadership development at all levels. If leadership is not developed, companies may be facing some serious repercussions from this oversight. 77 77% of businesses report that leadership is lacking.

Register to Attend ABOUT US Inspiring, Equipping & Empowering the Next Generation of Leadership About Formed by Suffolk County Sheriff, Dr. Errol D. Toulon, Jr. in 2021, The Executive Leadership Conference is dedicated to the training, growth and empowerment of both current and up-and-coming executive leaders. With more than 30 years in law enforcement, Sheriff Toulon has seen first-hand the power & influence - and lack of leadership training in the various organizations he has worked for. With the onset of a global pandemic and the animosity, lack of trust and hardship facing law enforcement over the past two years, he made it his mission to develop trainings that would empower, equip and train up executive leaders, in walks of life, to do better, be better and think better.
