About the Suffolk County Police Department

At the general election held in November, 1958 the Suffolk County Charter was submitted to the voters of Suffolk County, together with a question of whether the respective Towns and Villages should transfer their police functions to the County Police Department.


The five western Towns of Babylon, Huntington, Islip, Smithtown and Brookhaven, together with the Incorporated Villages of Lindenhurst, Babylon, Patchogue, Brightwaters, Village of the Branch, Old Field, Poquott, Belle Terre, Shoreham and Bellport, duly voted to become part of the Police District. As a result, the Suffolk county Police Department became operational at 0001hrs. on January 1, 1960.





Keith Bettinger is a retired police officer who served with the Suffolk County Police Department in Yaphank, New York from 1972-1994.  His book, “Fighting Crime With "Some" Day and Lenny: Or What Happens When Dragnet Meets Car 54 Where Are You?” follows the adventures of the fictional characters Detective Lenny Birnbaum and his boss, Sergeant Robert “Some” Day, as they fight the evil-doers in that hotbed of crime, Staten Island, New York.
