BRENTWOOD, NY-- The Suffolk County Sheriff's Office graduated thirty-seven recruits from Class 14-154 to the rank of Correction Officer during a graduation ceremony held at Suffolk Community College in Brentwood on Tuesday, October 7th.

As recruits of the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office Academy Bureau, the new officers successfully navigated a demanding thirteen week training program. During their Academy instruction, all recruits are required to successfully complete a variety of classroom and field instruction including, but not limited to, firearm safety and handling, defensive tactics, emergency medical training and a rigorous program of physical fitness and testing.  They are also required to complete a community service project.  Class 14-154 collected school supplies for Little Flower Children Services in Wading River and delivered the boxes of donations to the non-profit organization on Wednesday. 

Suffolk County Sheriff Vincent F. DeMarco welcomed the new Correction Officers during Tuesday’s ceremony and said, “The job of a Correction officer is one of the most challenging careers in law enforcement, but it can also be one of the most rewarding.”
