Vocational Work Programs

The Suffolk County Correctional Facilities encourages our incarcerated individuals to participate in vocational training programs and projects off-site to learn new skills and acquire certificates to take with them when they leave our facilities. This includes work for various not for profit organizations, other Suffolk County departments, the United States Coast Guard, and Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office installations. These inmates work on a regular basis and are taught in areas of masonry work, carpentry, landscaping, and painting. They do not receive certificates but receive hands on knowledge in these areas. They have worked on numerous projects throughout Suffolk County, including:

  1. Landscaping and maintenance projects in the Riverhead Maximum Security Facility.

  2. Landscaping and maintenance projects in the Yaphank Maximum Security Facility.

  3. Painting and restoration of the Historic Davis House in Coram.
