  • Suffolk County Probation Officer Exam 2021

    Hey everyone, just noticed on the Suffolk County civil service website that this exam is currently open to apply for. Does anyone here have any info/experience with this position ? Pay, benefits, growth, work life?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You

    Anyone know of any current/retired probation officers here on the board ? Is there another section on the forum that I should post this in ? Thanks

      I’m not a Suffolk county PO, but have been looking into the job for my wife. There isn’t much available information about the department online; however, I believe it’s a decent career. Based on publicly available salary information, Suffolk POs seem to receive regular raises, topping out somewhere in the 80’s. Suffolk county health insurance (assuming Suffolk blue cross blue shield). 25 year NYS peace officer retirement. Ability to promote, senior PO, supervisory, etc. If you’re interested in probation work I also encourage you to look into the federal system. Go to uscourts.gov and look at the probation officer postings. Starting pay is more generous than local, and it’s a very dynamic job.

      Hey socialjustice90, thanks for the response. Yes it’s tough to find any info on this position on the web. I did read a somewhat recent news article online that they did receive a new contract with a significant pay raise- I do believe though top pay is around 13-15 years on but I’m not 100 percent on that.
