Domestic Violence Unit

The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office Domestic Violence Unit is responsible for the service and enforcement of orders of protection throughout Suffolk County. They also arrest individuals charged with violating orders of protection and those with family offense related warrants. The Domestic Violence Unit provides victims with a safe refuge by removing batterers from the home, seizing weapons and executing arrest warrants against the perpetrators of domestic violence.

The Domestic Violence Unit continues in its mission of serving orders of protection on behalf of the courts to those individuals that are deemed a danger to another. 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.

The Suffolk County Sheriff's Office is an Accredited Law Enforcement Agency
