These new Deputy Sheriff Recruits will begin a rigorous six-month training program.
The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office recently held a swearing in ceremony for ten new Deputy Sheriff Recruits at the Maxine S. Postal Auditorium in the Riverhead County Center. This new class of Deputy Sheriff Recruits follows a class of 20 Recruits that began their training on April 1, 2021.
These new Deputy Sheriff Recruits will begin a rigorous six-month training program that includes instruction in firearms, emergency vehicle operations (EVOC), EMT training, and individualized field training. The recruits will graduate in the fall, joining a force consisting of 250 Suffolk County Deputy Sheriffs.
Sheriff Toulon welcomed these new deputies to the Sheriff’s Office, reminding them that they “now hold a position of authority in Suffolk County, and with that authority comes great responsibility.”
