Patchogue, NY - February 11, 2019 - On Tuesday, February 5th, Suffolk County Sheriff Errol D. Toulon, Jr., payed a special visit to the Medford Elementary School to talk with 200 students in the 4th and 5th grade class about making good choices and about what the Sheriff’s Office does to help the citizens of Suffolk County. He also answered questions that the students had about working in law enforcement, what he likes best about being the Sheriff, and how they could grow up to become the Sheriff.
Sheriff Toulon told the students, “Even when things seem impossible, keep pushing through, because YOU CAN DO IT if you really put your mind to it.”  He told them about how he faced his own struggles growing up in the Bronx and even as an adult he faces struggles, but anything is possible if you put your mind to it and stay focused on your goals. 
The Medford Elementary School Principal, Margherita Proscia said, “Thank you to Suffolk County Sheriff Errol D. Toulon, Jr., and his officers for visiting Medford Elementary School. Sheriff Toulon shared stories about growing up in the South Bronx and his unique path to his current role as Suffolk County Sheriff. He delivered a presentation about his role in the community and how the Sheriff’s office is working to help our youth.  Sheriff Toulon also answered questions from students and spent some time meeting with various students privately. We look forward to his next visit.”
