Civil Enforcement Section

The Civil Enforcement Section of the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office is the enforcement arm of the civil courts.  Its authority lies in the New York State Constitution, the Civil Practice Law and Rules, and the Real Property Law of the State of New York.  The civil actions that are processed by this bureau include:  property executions (for real and personal property), income executions, warrants to remove, any service of process, warrants of arrest, orders of seizure, orders of attachment, service of D.W.I. forfeiture summonses for the County Attorney, closure orders for Health Services and all other orders issued from any civil court.  In addition to civil enforcement, the Deputies assigned to this section also enforce Penal Law, Criminal Procedure Law and Vehicle & Traffic Law.  This section’s law enforcement encompasses all of the ten townships that comprise Suffolk County.

S.P.I.D.R.E. DWI Enforcement Team

The Sheriff's DWI enforcement team called the Sheriff’s Proactive Impaired Driving Effort (SPIDRE) is out patrolling the roads of Suffolk County throughout the year. The SPIDRE enforcement team was funded through the Suffolk County STOP-DWI program, which is 100% supported by fines collected from individuals that are convicted of alcohol and/or drug related traffic infractions. The SPIDRE enforcement team includes three Deputy Sheriff Drug Recognition Experts (DRE’s).

The Sheriff’s BAT Mobile, a completely self-contained D.W.I. processing center, is another tool the Sheriff's Office uses to keep our roads safe.  The BAT Mobile enables Deputy Sheriffs to quickly process arrests and maximize time patrolling the roads. 

The B.A.T Mobile is a modified command post equipped with breath and blood testing equipment, video recording devices, computer workstations, and a secure space to hold arrestees during processing . The onsite vehicle enables officers to reduce travel time transporting suspects to obtain blood tests and analyze breath, and improves the testing results of D.W.I. suspects since blood alcohol content can diminish with time.

The unit was purchased with an Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant, and from asset forfeiture funds seized during drug arrests.  It makes frequent patrols throughout Suffolk County.
