Criminal Investigations Bureau

The Criminal Investigations Bureau was organized in October 1981 to investigate and prosecute any and all crimes committed within any of the Sheriff's Office Facilities or against any of the office’s members. This unit will also conduct any criminal investigations as directed by the Sheriff.

The Criminal Investigations Bureau, C.I.B., coordinates and acts as liaison between the Sheriff's Office and all other law enforcement agencies. C.I.B. conducts all criminal and potentially criminal investigations as well as all attempted suicide and death investigations that relate to persons placed in the custody of the Sheriff of Suffolk County or that relate to incidents, events or circumstances involving operations or functions being conducted by Sheriff’s Office personnel.

C.I.B. handles felony arrests made by members of the Sheriff's Office to ensure that all court paperwork is in the correct format and completed to proper legal standards. This Bureau evaluates information and conducts investigations into allegations of criminal activities within the geographical area of Suffolk County as well as the confines of the counties correctional facilities. Many criminal investigations conducted by this bureau result in the arrest and prosecution of individuals introducing or attempting to introduce contraband into Sheriff's Office facilities. During the course of these investigations all other criminal activity suspected is thoroughly investigated and acted upon accordingly.

C.I.B. works in conjunction with the District Attorney's Office in preparing and presenting cases to the Grand Jury. All evidence relating to Sheriff's Office arrests are processed through this bureau. C.I.B. is also responsible for the safe escort of high security inmates to and from various correctional facilities, courts and other locations outside the boundaries of the correctional facilities. C.I.B. also provides manpower to other law enforcement agencies, when requested, to assist in various task force operations.

The Suffolk County Sheriff's Office is an Accredited Law Enforcement Agency
