Suffolk County Sheriff Vincent F. DeMarco announced today that he is seeking new members for the Sheriff’s Office Citizens Advisory Board (SOCAB). The SOCAB was established in January 2014 as a way to enhance communication and improve collaboration with residents. It is part of Sheriff DeMarco’s overall policy of “citizen engagement” to promote ethical and responsive government representation. In addition to the SOCAB, the Sheriff hosts two other Boards – the Youth Re-Entry Task Force and a Veterans Re-Entry Task Force.

“Each one of these initiatives engages the public on important policy matters, and gives us a network of individuals with diverse backgrounds and expertise to help us innovate and think outside the box when seeking solutions to problems,” stated Sheriff DeMarco. He added, “Preserving public trust in law enforcement and giving the people we serve a true stake in government are the overriding reasons we emphasize citizen engagement at the Sheriff’s Office.”
