These new Correction Officer Recruits immediately began a rigorous four-month training program that includes instruction in direct supervision, de-escalation techniques, report writing, defensive tactics, firearms, and much more. The recruits will graduate in the fall, joining a force currently consisting of 836 Suffolk County Correction Officers.  

This class of 30 Correction Officer Recruits includes 26 male recruits and four females among which six are Black and three are Hispanic. There is one Veteran, two recruits with prior law enforcement, nine recruits with Bachelor’s degrees, and five with Associate degrees.
