    Just guessing here, but I would assume, that the Sheriff there is like the Sheriff for the City of St. Louis, No Law enforcement, Just Civil process. The St louis Sheriff handles Court Security, Prisoner Transports, the City Jail, and Civil Process. They can arrest on a valid warrant, they have a special squad for that, one of the S.O.'s I worked for our Sheriff was a buddy of the St. Louis Sheriff, He could get the Sheriff there to serve our warrants, when we would just get laughed at by the St. Louis Police Department. Since I know that Jail, is handled by a different agency in NYC I would expect that the NYC Sheriff is pretty limited.

        100% wrong. They do not drive tow trucks, the tow trucks are driven by tow truck drivers under the direction of a Deputy Sheriff. They are predominatly enforce civil laws but also have the authority to enforce criminal laws. They monitor NYPD radio frequencies and may repsond to NYPD calls if they are in the area. They also enforce NYS VTL laws, so don't think you can blow lights in front of them . They work 4 days a week with 10 hour shifts, OT is good and the starting salary is better than NYPD.

        The sheriff is known as the chief civil law enforcement officer for the City of New York. NYC Sheriff's are traditionally known as peace officers. Responsibilities include revenue collections in civil situations; collecting funds or making arrests for parents in arrears of child-support payments; and collecting on judicial judgments, and parking or moving violations. They handle enforcement judgments for both small claims and Supreme Court. Such responsibilities may involve collection of unpaid taxes, enforcement of unpaid environmental fines, seizure of property and evictions. The sheriff also may sell real and personal property to satisfy judgments, and perform civil arrests. The Sheriff's office has also become involved with cigarette-tax enforcement.In addition, the sheriff sells vehicles not recovered by their owners; checks towed vehicles to determine if they are stolen, and enforces court judgments through a variety of programs.

        Currently, the N.Y.C. Sheriffs Office has the following units performing various law enforcement duties:

        County Field Offices
        By law, the sheriff must maintain an office in each of the five counties composing New York City. Deputy Sheriffs assigned to these offices perform a wide variety of tasks such as executing arrest process such as warrants of arrest, orders to commit, and mental hygiene warrants. Deputies also execute eviction process, service process, and the enforcement, seizure, and sale of property pursuant to judicial mandates. The county offices function similar to a police precinct, giving citizens of the county a local place to file court process in need of enforcement.

        Patrol Unit
        Deputy Sheriffs assigned to this unit perform patrol functions, searching the city streets with court mandates in order to seize vehicles for unpaid parking and moving violations, and issuing summons to vehicles in violation of N.Y.C. traffic ordinances and N.Y.S. Vehicle and Traffic Laws. This unit also provides additional law enforcement presence on the city streets, and many times the public calls upon them to help preserve order. This assistance includes but is not limited to: summoning emergency medical service, preventing and terminating robberies, assaults, and thefts and any other peace keeping function necessary to maintain law and order.

        Warrants Unit
        Deputy Sheriffs assigned to this unit serve legal process such as summons and subpoenas for Family Court offenses as well as arresting and jailing individuals pursuant to Family Court warrants of arrest and commitment. In addition, the Warrants Division is sometimes called upon by other units to effectuate arrests of a especially difficult or dangerous nature.

        Mental Health Enforcement Unit (aka Kendra's Unit)
        This unit enforces Kendra's Law, named after Kendra Webdale, who died after being pushed onto the subway tracks by a mentally ill man in 1999. Kendra's Law provides a procedure for the removal of a patient, subject to a court order, to a hospital for evaluation and observation. In cases where the patient fails to comply with the ordered treatment and poses risk of harm, this unit will locate, detain, and transport the patient.

        Auto Theft Unit
        This unit works in conjunction with the sheriffs patrol unit identifying stolen cars seized by the sheriff. Last year, this unit recovered more stolen cars than any other law enforcement agency in New York State. This unit also works closely with the various District Attorney Offices' in making arrests and combating automobile theft.

        Auction Unit
        This unit conducts judicial sales of vehicles seized by the sheriffs patrol unit. Deputies maintain order at large sales where hundreds of bidders may be present, and they safeguard and protect property seized, and all proceeds of these sheriff sales.

        Seizure Unit
        Deputy Sheriffs in this unit conduct high profile investigations and property seizures under court order. Businesses and individuals that owe the city money pursuant to unpaid City Tax Warrants, Environmental Control Board summons, and Fire and Health Code violations and fines, are targeted for enforcement action by this unit.


        All law enforcement duties executed in the name of the Sheriff are performed by deputy sheriffs. Because of the highly diverse law enforcement duties deputy sheriffs encounter, all deputies are cross trained in many areas of criminal law and civil law. The Sheriff can be considered the "Jack of All Trades" law enforcement officer. It is not unusual for a deputy sheriff to perform work similar to a police officer, correction officer, court officer, investigator, lawyer, and auctioneer all in one day. Because of the diversity in tasks a deputy sheriff must face, the requirements for deputy sheriff are one of the most stringent in comparison with other law enforcement positions available in the city and state.
        In order to be hired, candidates must first pass a civil service entrance examination and meet these strong educational requirements:

        1. A baccalaureate degree from an accredited college with specialization in accounting, law, criminal justice, economics, business administration, public administration or other closely related field; or
        2. A four year high school diploma or its educational equivalent and two years in law, accounting, criminal justice, business administration, investigation or a closely related field.

        In addition to these educational requirements, newly hired deputy sheriffs must pass all aspects of Sheriffs Office training which include a two year probationary period and the following certifications:
        1. N.Y.S. Municipal Police Training Council Peace Officer Certification
        2. N.Y.S. Municipal Police Training Council Firearms and Deadly Physical Force Certification.
        3. N.Y.S. Sheriffs' Association School on Civil Procedure.
        4. ASP Baton Training
        5. Chemical Agent/Pepper spray training.

        Because of these strict requirements, the sheriffs office has probably the most educated law enforcement officers in the city. This highly educated, highly professional staff can proudly say that in the past 40 years of the City Sheriffs existence:
        1. No city deputy sheriff has ever been killed in the line of duty.
        2. No city deputy sheriff has ever killed or shot an individual in the line of duty, even though we perform a wide variety of dangerous tasks such as arrests, evictions, and seizures.
        3. No city deputy sheriff has ever been indicted for a felony or charged with a misdemeanor or violation in regards to any area in performance of his duty.

        This outstanding record is not due to luck. It is the product of having a mature compliment of highly trained and educated deputy sheriffs working for the city. Education and dealing with the public under stressful and adverse conditions is always of paramount concern to the City Sheriff. Deputy Sheriffs are always aware of individual rights and liberties, and as history has shown, never had to trample these rights to get the job done no matter how difficult the task.

        The City Sheriff has at its disposal 150 sworn deputy sheriffs plus additional support staff. All deputies are required to live within the city of New York, and because of our size, can easily mobilize all of our sworn officers within a short period of time. This small size eliminates bureaucratic dysfunction, and allows for easy, swift communication between the many Divisions in the Sheriffs Office.

        Following in the modern law enforcement model set by Sir Robert Peel, the Sheriffs Office has a clear chain of command along military lines: Sheriff, Chief of Department, Undersheriff, Lieutenant, Sergeant, and finally Deputy Sheriff. Deputies wear easily recognized blue uniforms and drive clearly marked sheriffs patrol cars. All deputies have shields, name tags, and are required to keep accurate logs of daily activities.

              I would hardly call it a bar room lecture, more like a total overview of the position. The original question requested information about a specific department and position; I provided a thorough and complete answer covering all aspects of the position and department. The information posted was taken directly from their website and not my personal opinion. You are entitled to your opinion about the NYC Sheriff
