  • 2/2020 NYS Safety and Security Officer (Peace Officer)

    New York State Office of Mental Health, Department of Health and The Office of Persons with Disabilities is currently hiring Safety and Security Officers. We are New York State Peace Officers and we provide law enforcement services to facilities that treat/house persons with mental health issues. Starting pay is $36465 and tops out at approximately $70000 after 7 years. Upon completion of the academy (12 weeks of training, 6 upstate and 6 weeks at your facility) you are designated as a Special Policeman and NYS Peace Officer.

    The position is a combination of police, fire marshal, code enforcement and corrections type work. A typical day could consist of conducting building inspections, responding to burglary/fire alarms, responding to disturbances, conducting traffic stops, making arrests, checking for weapons/contraband, writing parking tickets, writing field appearance tickets, testifying in criminal/traffic court, teaching fire safety classes, issuing ID cards, and transporting mentally ill persons.

    If you are interested apply by 1/15/2020. Apply here:


    Pros: Job security, 25 year retirement (any age), NYSCOPBA Union membership, excellent health benefits, dental, vision, abundant overtime (you can make six figures) and being a part of the law enforcement community.

    Cons: No firearms (The administration is currently against this due to the clientele that we work with, I don’t agree with it but don’t blame the messenger). We are trained/armed with an expandable baton. We work holidays, weekends, overnights, etc.

    Here are the physical/medical requirements:

    If you score high enough and can pass the other items I posted you have a very good chance of getting this job. We need people due to retirements and folks that leave for other police agencies. Here in Suffolk County we need 5 officers. In the city and upstate I’m sure there are many openings.

    Good luck!
