The Quartermaster Bureau is responsible for the issuance and inventory maintenance of uniform items and assorted equipment for approximately 1,200 employees of the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office. In addition, responsibilities include the preparation of hundreds of requests for the purchase of thousands of pieces of equipment and uniform items yearly.

B) Personal property received from the owner as a self-surrender.
C) Found and/or confiscated property from police agencies, estates, and warrants of evictions.
