Welcome to the Suffolk County Office of Public Information

The Office of Public Information was created within the County Department of Human Resources, Personnel and Civil Service to improve communications between all county departments, the legislature and the general public. Suffolk County offers a multitude of programs and services to its residents. This office coordinates the distribution of information concerning these county programs/services and issues news bulletins on a regular basis, in an effort to help keep residents informed. The bulletins go to all the libraries within the Suffolk County Cooperative Library System, town offices, civic associations, all county departments and legislative offices.

The Public Information Office is open 9:00a.m. to 5:00p.m., Monday through Friday. After hours, you can leave a voice mail message at (631) 853-4402 and someone will return your call as soon as possible.

Ambrose-Searles ‘MOVE OVER Act’...as of January 1, 2011 the Ambrose-Searles ‘Move Over Act’, which requires drivers to exercise due care to avoid colliding with an authorized emergency vehicle which is parked, stopped or standing on the shoulder of a road or highway with its emergency lights activated became effective. On parkways and other controlled access highways with multiple lanes, drivers must move from the lane immediately adjacent to the emergency vehicle, unless traffic or other hazards exist to prevent doing so safely.
