Chief Deputy Sheriff Christopher Brockmeyer

Chief Deputy Sheriff Christopher Brockmeyer has over 20 years in law enforcement and began his career at the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office in 1998. Christopher 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, Christopher 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, Chief 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 later oversaw as the Commanding Officer. Christopher procured and managed technology related software, equipment, and initiatives that included 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 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, Christopher 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. In 2015, Christopher was promoted to Captain and remained in this assignment serving as the Executive Officer of the Police Division. He commanded the Criminal Investigations Bureau which handles complex criminal investigations and evidence/property management for the Sheriff’s Office. In addition, he oversaw the Pistol License Bureau and numerous Special Operations units including the Tactical Sheriff’s Response Team, Tactical Rifle and Containment Team, Air Support Unit, Bike Patrol, Marine Section, Stop-DWI Team, and the Honor Guard. In response to active shooter events locally and around the country, Chief Brockmeyer developed and supervised the Deputy Sheriff Patrol Rifle Program. He also managed the Deputy Sheriff Field Training Program which is the initial field training Deputy Sheriffs receive upon graduation from the Suffolk County Police Academy.

Chief 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.

Christopher’ 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 the 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.
