Suffolk County Sheriff's Office Celebrates Internship Graduation

7 Inters graduated from 13-week program that gives an inside look into Corrections and Deputy Sheriff Career Paths.

Today Suffolk County Sheriff Dr. Errol D. Toulon, Jr. honored the Sheriff's Office interns at a graduation ceremony at the Yaphank Correctional Facility.

This fall, 7 interns participated in the coveted 13-week program designed to give college-aged students hands-on experience of the different units and career paths available at the Suffolk County Sheriff's Office. Participants toured the Correctional Facilities, Warrant Squad, Domestic Violence Bureau and Marine Bureau, while learning firsthand from officers about their daily duties and experiences as a law enforcement officer. They also had the opportunity to participate in Active Threat Scenarios and take a ride along with a Deputy Sheriff to gain knowledge of patrol procedures and the enforcement of traffic laws. These experiences allow young adults to work alongside officers in each area to give them a unique experience to help them make informed choices about pursuing a career in law enforcement.
