16 Suffolk County Deputy Sheriff Recruits Sworn In

The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office held a swearing in ceremony for sixteen new Deputy Sheriff Recruits today at the Maxine S. Postal Auditorium in the Riverhead County Center.

These new Deputy Sheriff Recruits will begin a rigorous six-month training program that includes instruction in firearms, emergency vehicle operations (EVOC), EMT training, and individualized field training. The recruits will graduate in the summer, joining a force consisting of 246 Suffolk County Deputy Sheriffs.

Sheriff Toulon welcomed these new deputies to the Sheriff’s Office, reminding them that they “now hold a position of authority in Suffolk County, and with that authority comes great responsibility.”

The class consists of 2 former Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office Correction Officers, 1 former NYS Court Officer, 4 former NYPD Officers and five Veterans.
