Suffolk County Sheriff's Office holds ceremonies to commemorate recent promotions

Today, Suffolk County Sheriff Errol D. Toulon, Jr. and the Executive Staff of the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office held two promotional ceremonies for Corrections Officers and Deputy Sheriffs who have recently been promoted. The ceremony recognized Officers who were promoted during COVID-19 mandates that prohibited a formal ceremony.

“Due to COVID-19 protocols, many Officers did not get proper recognition for their promotion. It takes a degree of high caliber and merit to rise the ranks and we wanted to remind them that their work and dedication is valued and that we are there for them,” said Suffolk County Sheriff Errol D. Toulon, Jr.

The two ceremonies recognized over 60 officers who were promoted to ranks of Captain, Lieutenant or Sergeant as well as those who received an Investigator shield. Rank promotions are achieved through exceptional marks on highly competitive exams in addition to their distinguished service in the Sheriff’s Office.

“On behalf of the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office, I congratulate these men and women on their achievements and wish them success in their new roles,” said Sheriff Toulon.
