What is a Deputy Sheriff?

For more than 100 years Nassau County Deputy Sheriffs have carried on the proud
Law Enforcement tradition of protecting and serving the residents of Nassau County.

Today, Nassau County Deputy Sheriffs serve as NYS Certified Police Officers drawing their
authority to enforce both criminal and civil law from the NYS Criminal Procedure Law,
NYS Constitution, and the Nassau County Charter. Deputy Sheriffs do not provide security
 in the Jail or in the Courts. Whether our Deputies are executing warrants, enforcing traffic
laws or assisting with domestic violence cases, their long history of integrity and
professionalism is just a small indication of their dedication to the public that they serve.

The NCDSBA represents and supports all of the Nassau County Deputy Sheriffs
and Deputy Sheriff Superior Officers.

Nassau County Corrections Officers are are Peace Officers who fall under the
control of the corrections division of the Nassau County Sheriff's Department.
They are not Deputy Sheriffs.
