Our Programs Provide an Ounce of Prevention

The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Foundation directs its fundraising to support three overarching funding initiatives.

The Community Investment Fund enhances public and community relations for the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office by supporting educational and community outreach initiatives. These sponsored events build mutual respect and understanding between the community and the Sheriff’s Office.

The Inside-Out Fund provides funding for critical continuing staff education and training that will help improve public safety, foster greater accountability and develop culturally responsive policing. It will also help fund Sheriff’s Office-sponsored sports teams to improve morale in the law enforcement community. These teams also provide opportunities to raise funds for other selected charities.

The Community Service Fund provides support to programming that helps children with incarcerated parents and those who have been in county jail transition back into the community while lowering their chances of reoffending. These initiatives directly impact at-risk individuals while working to break the cycle of crime and incarceration.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
