Captain Christopher Brockmeyer

Captain Christopher J. Brockmeyer has over 20 years in law enforcement and began his career at the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office in 1998. Captain Brockmeyer graduated the Suffolk County Police Academy in June 1999 where he received his police officer certification from the Municipal Police Training Council. He followed in his father’s footsteps, a 37-year NYPD Detective 1st Grade, becoming the second police officer in his family line.

As a Deputy Sheriff, Captain Brockmeyer worked in various bureaus at the Sheriff’s Office including the 1st District Court Bureau, Headquarters Bureau, and the Domestic Violence Bureau. Following his promotion to Sergeant in 2006, he was assigned to the Headquarters Bureau where he supervised Deputy Sheriff Personnel in prisoner transportation, court detention, highway patrol, and special events. He was appointed as an Investigator Sergeant in 2010 and served as both the Executive and Commanding Officer of the Enforcement Bureau’s Highway Enforcement Section which handled crash and fatal investigations, emergency response and enforcement related activities.

Early on in his career, Captain Brockmeyer recognized the need for technology enhancements and began to promote a data-driven approach for managing the operations of the Police Division. He recommended the creation of the Police Technology Management Section which he now oversees as the Commanding Officer. Captain Brockmeyer procured and manages technology related software, equipment, and initiatives that includes the Records Management System, Computer Aided Dispatch, In-Car and Body Camera systems, License Plate Reader technology, security and access control and others. This technology has enabled the Police Division to more efficiently manage its operations and partner with other local, state and federal agencies to share information and coordinate their efforts on investigations and crime patterns.

In 2014, he was promoted to Investigator Lieutenant and was assigned to the Office of the Chief Deputy Sheriff where he assisted in the management and operational responsibilities of over 250 Deputy Sheriffs assigned to the Police Division. Captain Brockmeyer remains in this assignment and currently serves as the Executive Officer of the Police Division. He assists the Chief Deputy Sheriff with the planning and implementation of policies and procedures, coordination with partner law enforcement agencies, and the oversight of daily operations within the Police Division.

Captain Brockmeyer also commands the Criminal Investigations Bureau which handles complex criminal investigations and evidence/property management for the Sheriff’s Office. In addition, he oversees the Pistol License Bureau and numerous Special Operations units including the Tactical Sheriff’s Response Team, Tactical Rifle and Containment Team, Air Support Unit, K-9 Section, Bike Patrol, Marine Section, Stop-DWI Team, and the Honor Guard. In response to active shooter events locally and around the country, Captain Brockmeyer developed and supervises the Deputy Sheriff Patrol Rifle Program. He also manages the Deputy Sheriff Field Training Program which is the initial field training Deputy Sheriffs receive upon graduation from the Suffolk County Police Academy.

Captain Brockmeyer has received extensive training over the years to include Certified Breath Technician, General Topics Instructor, Field Training Officer, Field Intelligence Officer, CDL licensed operator, Basic SWAT and Command Leadership, and numerous training courses in Homeland Security and Incident Command Management. He is an Instrument-Rated Pilot for the Air Support Unit and Remote Pilot for the Sheriff’s Office Unmanned Aerial Vehicle program.

Captain Brockmeyer’s desire to serve and protect the community is what inspired him to become a police officer. That commitment is ongoing as he looks for ways to improve community interaction and response capabilities of Deputy Sheriffs. Moving forward he hopes to fulfill this goal by emphasizing in-service training, ensuring Deputy Sheriffs stay up to date on current trends and best practices in their profession.
