SUFFOLK COUNTY, NY-- Sheriff Vincent F. DeMarco wants to deter drivers without the proper permits from using handicapped accessible parking spaces this holiday season, and has stepped up enforcement efforts. “You may be in a hurry to get your shopping done, but if you park in a handicapped parking spot and you are not disabled, you could face a stiff fine,” said Sheriff DeMarco.

The County Sheriff is also asking for the public’s help in this effort.  If you witness a potential violation, send the Sheriff’s Office an email at or via the “send email” button on the Sheriff’s Office’s official Facebook page  Please include the date of the incident, the time, and the exact location. Photos are also helpful.  All tips will be kept completely confidential. 

This enhanced enforcement effort will begin immediately and last through New Year’s Day.
