Suffolk County Police Announce Increased Enforcement for Memorial Day Weekend
Suffolk County Police Commissioner Timothy D. Sini and Suffolk County Police Chief of Department Stuart Cameron announce that police will be out in full force this holiday weekend to keep residents safe.
Police will be conducting high visibility patrols on roads and waterways throughout the county between May 26 and May 29. Officers will take a zero-tolerance approach to anyone driving or boating under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In addition to targeting those under the influence, officers will enforce aggressive driving and seatbelt infractions. The department will utilize funds from the Safe Driving Enforcement grant and Stop-DWI grant to provide traffic and DWI enforcement.
The enforcement efforts will include officers from the seven precincts and officers from the Highway Patrol Bureau and Marine Bureau. In addition to standard patrols, police officers will be on foot, bicycles and ATVs.
Officers will patrol popular downtown business districts, large public gatherings and vulnerable entities.
Precinct Crime Section Officers will monitor social media and gather information to prevent house parties with underage drinking. Anyone who violates the Social Host Law, by allowing minors to consume alcohol, will be arrested.
Residents are reminded to call 911 to report suspicious activity. For non-emergencies, call 631-852-COPS.
