      Some folks Pm'd me a few questions which I will answer here for anyone interested:

      The Sheriff's Office is small, very small by NYPD standards. We currently have about 110 uniformed personnel. The rumored amount looking to be hired immediately (if the city allows it) is about 22 deputies. There are a number of deputies eligible to retire so that number could change.

      In the past couple of tests, as NYCTNT posted, it required a bachelors or equivalent. Much of that was because we had deputies who were provisional and the experience requirement would help them. At this time we have no provisionals so I do not know if the experience part will be lowered. I do know that they are looking to get younger blood into the office and basing some of it on experience again gives older people the advantage.

      The job has a 25-year retirement at 55%. The pay scale is similar to NYPD's, topping out in the upper 70's base for deputy, but NYPD has better benefits. Deputies are peace officers 24/7 and are encouraged to carry off duty unless going out drinking.

        I might add the NYC Sheriff's Office is under the NYC Dept. of Finance The deputies are primarily CIVIL OFFICERS engaged in process serving. Thanks for posting!!

          NYCDEP, do you know if unarmed peace officer status will fulfill the experience requirements in place of the bachelors degree

            Do deputies go through the regular police academy or is it different since they hold peace officer status?

              No, they go through Basic Peace officer training with firearms. Emphasis is on civil process (evictions, garnishments, sheriff's auctions, FCA etc.) It's not a bad job at all! I believe NYC residency is required.

                Thanks for the information. Is NYC residency required at time of civil service application or appointment?

                      NYC residency is NOT required. It is like PD, you can live as far as any county connected to a county that is connected to NYC. Example: You can live in Suffolk County which is connected to Nassau County, which is connected to NYC.

                      The Sheriff's Office has it's own academy which covers basic peace officer training plus.

                      We have a county office in each county and a couple of specialized units.

                      County offices handle processes, warrants, evictions, seizures, arrests, etc... filed by the public, attorneys, Office of Children and Family Services, and the courts.

                      Our Warrants Unit handles only processes and warrants for the HRA/ACS (i.e. deadbeat parents, neglect, and juvenile delinquents)

                      Our Kendra's Unit arrests the mentally ill based on Mental Health warrants.

                      Our new Cigarette Tax Enforcement Unit does buy and bust operations and inspections to stem the flow of illegal cigarettes coming into and being sold in the city. (Our current Sheriff was Deputy Director of the ATF before he became Sheriff) This is the unit they are most looking to bulk up.

                      Our even newer Truck Enforcement Unit is cracking down on over weight, over length trucks, and trucks that use non-truck routes.

                      We are also now running a pilot program where people who owe the City money are having their cars booted. We protect and enforce the seizure while private vendors boot the vehicles.

                      We also somehow also got stuck doing Auto Theft investigation and Auctions for the City Marshals.

                      In the last few tests given, previous law enforcement experience counted for up to 15% of your final test score. It is unknown at this time if that trend will continue for this test.

                          In a couple of months I'm going to get Peace Officer certification through Auxiliary, since Auxiliary isn't Law Enforcement, but the training we get is, does that count for anything?

                            It all depends upon the agency that employs occupational peace officers. Generally speaking, peace officer training is centered on the specialized duties that particular occupational peace officer performs. Once you graduate your Nassau County AP academy: you should be receiving a "PEACE OFFICER without firearms" Training Certificate. This is not certification since the NYSDJS DOES NOT certify [or license] peace officers.

                            Again, if you are being considered for an occupational peace officer position, you might want to bring up the topic of having the training certificate from DCJS to the appointing authority Note that if you become a county correction officer and receive the necessary training as prescribed by the State Commission On Corrections: This training is valid only throughout the course of your continued employment with the county [or another if you lateral transfer] and 12 months thereafter upon separation from service
                            .
