Suffolk County Sheriff
With 30 years of law enforcement experience, I’ve learned that succeeding as Sheriff requires putting politics aside and getting the job done—that’s why I’ve earned the endorsement of the Suffolk County Law Enforcement Coalition. Those 30 years of experience mean I’ve served long enough to see what works and what doesn’t. I spent 25 years working on Rikers Island in roles ranging from correction officer to deputy commissioner. I specialized in training thousands of officers in the latest gang prevention techniques. As your Sheriff, I have, and will continue to, crack down on violent gangs, like MS-13, to keep gang members behind bars and off our streets.

And together, there is not a single thing we cannot do."
