Police Officer Lottery Result 2016

A live webcast of the lottery of Police Officer candidates with a score of 95 was held on March 4, 2016. During the course of the lottery, one page in the book into which drawn names were being placed in lottery rank order, was inadvertently skipped and names were placed on the following page at a higher lottery number. As a result, all candidates whose names were chosen after rank number 1136, where the page was skipped, have had their rank number lowered to correct this error. Please be advised that the order in which all candidates’ names were drawn during the lottery still remains the same.

Suffolk County Police Department

Suffolk County Police Department

The Suffolk County Police Department started operations on January 1,1960, with a total force of 619 sworn officers. Currently there are over 2,375 sworn members, well over 600 civilian members and almost 400 School Crossing Guards.

The department provides all police services for the Suffolk County Police District, comprised of the five western towns of Babylon, Brookhaven, Huntington, Islip, and Smithtown.

The department also provides various police services as needed for eight incorporated villages within the five western towns which maintain their own police departments, as well as for the eleven town and village police located in the five eastern towns of the county.

The nine hundred square miles of Suffolk County are located on Long Island and are separated from the City of New York by only twenty miles. Suffolk County is, therefore, experiencing just about every law enforcement problem applicable to the largest metropolitan area of the country.


To provide and maintain a safe and peaceful environment in which people can live and work. Every employee of the Department acknowledges his or her obligation to provide professional services in the communities we serve by rendering aid to those in need, providing an environment free from fear, bringing to justice those who violate the law, and protecting all persons and property in accordance with legal, moral and ethical standards.
