A Message from the Suffolk County Sheriff

Dr. Errol Toulon, Jr.

"Welcome to the Suffolk County Sheriff's Office website. I am proud of the hard work and dedication of the men and women of the Sheriff's Office. We are honored to serve and protect the residents of Suffolk County. As your Sheriff, I have made it my priority to protect public safety, speak up and against the grain to do what I know is right, and raise the bar of accountability through robust training, supervision, and adherence to high standards. Throughout my 30-year career in law enforcement, I have also come to believe in the power of community input in government, volunteerism behind the bars, and how correctional institutions can change lives for the better. One of my proudest achievements since taking office is the creation of the S.T.A.R.T. Resource Center on the grounds of the Yaphank Jail. I hope that as you scroll through our website, it will provide you with the information you are seeking, and much more."
