  • Nassau County PD-Vs- Suffolk PD

    I just wanted to hear a few thoughts comparing the two departments.
    1. Schedule vs. schedule
    2. Pay Scale vs. Pay Scale
    3. Ability to/how to promote
    4. If a person was to go through let's say a Nassau academy, and then gets called for Suffolk, do they have the ability to go/do they have to go through another academy?

    Thanks all!

    1. I believe Suffolk works a similar chart to NYPD, working 5 days a week 8 hour tours. I believe they also rotate between days and 4-12. Midnights do 10 hours 4 on 4 off. Nassau generally works 3 on 4 off, 2 on 3 off chart orange which is the best chart youll ever find IMO.
    2. Suffolk makes more currently, but Nassau is out of contract and the contract they proposed recently brings them to the same salary as Suffolk.
    3. Promotions are the same, a civil service test.
    4. You have to do the academy over.

    I havent heard many negatives about either job, both are great.

        1) Schedule for Suffolk: 7-3 (2) days off 3-11 (3) days off. This rotates. Current contract also entails county days for rotating shift (10) aka letter days off which are divided over ten months one per month. Night tours does not get these days.
        Overnight tours: 2100 to 0700 with 4 on 4 off.

        2) Top pay $155,693 with night diff, Uni allow, Holiday pay, Longevity *Not including a day of OT you’re at about $190k plus. *Top step.

        3) Not sure if you’re asking about promotional exams or promotional advertisement. Promotional exams are given every two years. If you are looking to transfer within to special commands, you have to submit a request.

        4) You go through the Suffolk academy no matter what, your experience counts on the backend.

        I have no info regarding Nassau besides what’s on there public website. GL.
