If I have a concealed carry license, can I carry my pistol or revolver to sensitive locations? No. Subject to exceptions for certain individuals (see next FAQ), Penal Law §265.01-e prohibits bringing any pistol, revolver, rifle, shotgun or any other firearm to a sensitive location – even if you have a concealed carry license. Are there any exceptions to this rule? Is anyone exempt from the prohibition of possession of firearms, rifles, or shotguns in sensitive locations? Yes, the law exempts the following persons: Police officers in New York State, as defined in Criminal Procedure Law § 1.20(34), and those who were employed as police officers in New York State but are retired; Retired law enforcement officers who qualify under 18 U.S.C. 926(C)(the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act, or LEOSA); Peace officers in New York State, as defined in Criminal Procedure Law § 2.10; Armed security guards registered by the NYS Department of State while working; Active-duty military personnel; Persons licensed under paragraph c, d, or e subdivision 2 of § 400.00 of the Penal Law while in the course of official duties; Persons lawfully engaged in hunting activity, including hunter education training; Persons operating a program in their home that would otherwise be considered a sensitive location, however, such possession must comply with any rules or regulations (e.g., safe storage); and Government employees with agency consent, for the purpose of natural resource protection. Is it a crime to enter another person’s property, also known as a “restricted location” under the law, with a firearm, rifle, or shotgun without the owner’s or lessee’s consent? Subject to exemptions for certain individuals, you can only enter another person’s property with a firearm, rifle, or shotgun when the owner or lessee has specifically posted that it allowed, or the owner or lessee has expressly consented. Consent to carry must be reflected by clear and conspicuous signage or express verbal consent from the owner or lessee. (Penal Law § 265.01-d). Is anyone exempt from the prohibition of possession of firearms, rifles, or shotguns in restricted locations? Yes, the law exempts the following persons: Police officers in New York State, as defined in Criminal Procedure Law § 1.20(34), and those who were employed as police officers in New York State but are retired; New York peace officers, as defined in Criminal Procedure Law § 2.10; Armed security guards registered by the Department of State while working; Active-duty military personnel; Persons licensed under paragraph c, d, or e subdivision 2 of § 400.00 of the Penal Law while in the course of their official duties; and Persons lawfully engaged in hunting activity, including hunter education training. Can I possess a firearm, rifle or shotgun in the Adirondack and Catskill Parks? Certain areas of the parks are not considered “sensitive locations” under the law, as the state- owned or managed lands are legally classified as state forest preserve or are generally private lands. There are areas inside the Adirondack and Catskill Parks, however, that are classified as sensitive locations or restricted locations under the new gun law (e.g., libraries and government administrative facilities) and these specific locations are subject to the sensitive and restricted location restrictions under the law, which are detailed in Question 23. Please review the Department of Environmental Conservation’s FAQs for more information. How can I safely transport guns in a vehicle? Effective September 1, 2022, if you leave your gun unattended in a vehicle, it must be unloaded and locked in a fire, impact, and tamper resistant storage depository that is hidden from view. Glove compartments and glove boxes are not appropriate safe storage depositories. A plastic or aluminum, lockable, hard-sided, gun case or safe will suffice for this purpose. If an adult remains with the vehicle to ensure security, a case or safe is not required. To prevent theft and ensure safety, it is always recommended that firearms be secured during transport. Local rules for traveling with firearms also apply and may be more restrictive. For example, New York City requires that all guns be unloaded, in a case, and out of sight, even when you are with the vehicle (Penal Law § 265.45). All ammunition must be stored securely separately from the firearm. How am I required to store my guns in my home? If anyone younger than 18 years old or anyone who is prohibited from possessing a gun resides in the home, all firearms, rifles, and shotguns not in your immediate control must either be: secured with a gun locking device (trigger lock or cable lock) that makes them incapable of being accessed or fired by the prohibited individual, or locked securely in a safe or secure container that is fire, impact, and tamper resistant and which is locked using a key, keypad, or combination.

  • Motor Vehicle Levy | Suffolk County Sheriff's Office

    Motor Vehicle Levy A change in law went into effect on January 21, 2011 (see CPLR 5205). The Sheriff must now conduct his levies and sales on motor vehicles to conform to this new law. The new law gives a debtor a $5500.00 exemption above liens and encumbrances on his/her owned vehicle. The Sheriff will have to collect the debtor’s exemption, the lien amount on the vehicle (if there is one) and the expenses paid to levy the vehicle at the time of the Sheriff’s sale. If at the time of sale the bidding does not bring $5500.00 plus the lien amount, the sale is stopped and the vehicle will be returned to the debtor. ​ The plaintiff can bid on the vehicle. The first $5500.00 plus the lien amount must be paid in cash. Any bids you make above this amount can be a credit bid which will reduce the amount of the judgment. ​ Sheriff’s poundage will be paid in advance. Poundage is 5% of the vehicle value, or the execution amount (whichever is less).* This cost may or may not be reimbursed (or adjusted) from the proceeds of the sale. ​ CAUTION: The Sheriff’s seizure and sale of a vehicle may not result in the satisfaction of your judgment.

    ABOUT MISSION THE CONFERENCE ACCOMMODATIONS REGISTER BELOW Top To develop, equip and empower the next generation of executive leaders. Our Mission While the last several years have been about surviving - change was forced, extreme, and reactive. Out of all this change came something incredible - we learned that without collaborative, flexible and empowered leadership - our organizations would collapse. As we are reinventing our organizations, shifting leadership and going into a new era of how we serve our organizations - training, empowering and equipping leaders is a necessity. SEE OUR PREVIOUS CONFERENCE SPEAKERS >> Mission WHY The Power of High-Quality Executive Leadership Training Our annual, 2-day Executive Leadership Conference boasts the top speakers from around the country - who aim to inspire, educate, equip and motivate our members to reach their highest potential. Why why THE STATISTICS 83 83% of organizations believe it’s important to develop leaders at every level of the company. Developing leaders internally is more economically sound and makes for a more robust company 35 35% of American workers put company culture as a priority when job hunting - showing the importance of a quality work environment with good leadership at the helm. 5 Only 5% of businesses have implemented leadership development at all levels. If leadership is not developed, companies may be facing some serious repercussions from this oversight. 77 77% of businesses report that leadership is lacking.

Register to Attend ABOUT US Inspiring, Equipping & Empowering the Next Generation of Leadership About Formed by Suffolk County Sheriff, Dr. Errol D. Toulon, Jr. in 2021, The Executive Leadership Conference is dedicated to the training, growth and empowerment of both current and up-and-coming executive leaders. With more than 30 years in law enforcement, Sheriff Toulon has seen first-hand the power & influence - and lack of leadership training in the various organizations he has worked for. With the onset of a global pandemic and the animosity, lack of trust and hardship facing law enforcement over the past two years, he made it his mission to develop trainings that would empower, equip and train up executive leaders, in walks of life, to do better, be better and think better.

  • Orders of Protection | Suffolk County Sheriff's Office

    Orders of Protection Orders of protection are issued by a judge to protect you from another person who is abusing, harassing, threatening, and/or intimidating you, or has committed a crime against you. Orders of protection are commonly issued in cases involving domestic violence, but may also be issued under other circumstances. ​ Types of Orders of Protection Family Court Order of Protection: A Family Court Order of Protection is issued as part of a civil proceeding to stop violence that is occurring within the family or within an intimate relationship. You may begin the process of obtaining a Family Court order of protection by filling out the Family Offense Petition . In order to obtain an order of protection in Family Court, your relationship to the other person involved must fall in at least one of the following categories: Current or former spouse. Someone with whom you have a child in common. A family member to whom you are related by blood or marriage. Someone with whom you have, or have had, an 'intimate relationship.' (An intimate relationship does not necessarily mean a sexual relationship. Family Court will consider several factors such as, but not limited to: "how often you see each other or how long you have known each other.") Criminal Court Order of Protection: An Assistant District Attorney may request a criminal court order of protection on your behalf. You do not need to have an intimate or personal relationship with the person charged with the offense. The judge decides whether to issue an order of protection, as well as the terms and conditions. Supreme Court Order of Protection: A Supreme Court order of protection can be issued as part of ongoing divorce or criminal proceeding. If you are involved in an ongoing divorce case and wish to request an order of protection, you must make a written request by Motion or Order to Show Cause, or an oral request at a court appearance. If an attorney is representing you in the case, the attorney can make the written or oral request on your behalf. The judge decides whether to issue an order of protection, as well as the terms and conditions. Orders of protection may be temporary or final: Temporary Order of Protection: Issued the same day that a complainant files for an order of protection and lasts only until the next court date, at which point it may be extended. Final Order of Protection: A final order of protection is issued when the case results in a conviction (whether by plea or after a trial) in criminal court or in family court after a judge finds that a family offense was committed. Orders of protection may be full or limited: Full Order of Protection: A full order of protection means that the subject of the order of protection must stay completely away from you, your home, job and school, and must not abuse, harass, or threaten you. Limited Order of Protection: A limited order of protection allows the subject of the order of protection to maintain contact with you. However, the subject cannot abuse, harass, or threaten you. Serving Family or Supreme Court Orders of Protection For legal reasons, you may not serve your own order of protection. Orders of protection will be served in court by the judge if the defendant/respondent is present. ​ The Suffolk County Sheriff's Office may serve your Order of Protection. This service is free of charge. Once the Sherriff's Office has served the respondent, they will provide you with a signed statement that says the service has been completed. If the Sheriff's office is unable to deliver the order of protection after several attempts, they must provide you with a signed statement that includes the dates and times of each attempt. ​ An order of protection does not guarantee your safety. It is important that you have a safety plan should the person violate the order of protection. Violating an Order of Protection It is a crime to violate a temporary or final order of protection. If an individual violates the order of protection, you should report it to the police. In an emergency call 911 and the individual will be arrested. In a non-emergency, you may file a violation of the order of protection by going to a police precinct. If you have a Family Court order of protection, you may go to Family Court and file the violation, you may report the violation to the police or choose to do both. If you file a violation of the order of protection only in Family Court, the subject who violated the order might not be arrested. Learn more about an order of protection . ​ ​ ​ Extreme Risk Protective Order Please be advised that effective August 24, 2019 the NYS Supreme Courts may begin issuing an Extreme Risk Protective Order when a person may be dangerous to themselves or others. Please see the New York Courts website regarding how an order may be obtained. ​ ​ An Extreme Risk Protective Order (ERPO) is a court order issued when a person may be dangerous to themselves or others. An ERPO prohibits a person from purchasing or possessing guns and requires the person to surrender any guns they already own or possess. An ERPO can also direct the police to search a person, premises or a vehicle for guns and remove them. An ERPO case may be started by a district attorney, a police officer, a school official, or a member of the person’s family or household. It is a civil case. ERPO cases have no criminal charges or penalties. ​ The petitioner is the person filing the ERPO application with the court. The respondent is the person you are asking the Court to issue an ERPO against. The petitioner can be a district attorney, a police officer, a school official, or a member of the respondent’s family or household. ​ ​ Crime Victims Information Suffolk County Sheriff Errol D.
