 Message from Stuart Cameron, Chief of Department: 

Welcome to SCPD Shield.  SCPD Shield was designed as a public / private partnership program between our department and the private security managers that we serve.  Its chief purpose is to enhance crime prevention and counter-terrorism efforts here in Suffolk County. 

I have been a member of the NYPD Shield program for over ten years.  During this time I’ve seen firsthand the benefits of the Shield program.  In order to leverage this program’s success and avail our county of the New York City Police Department’s vast experience in terrorism prevention, our department opted to partner with the NYPD when we stood up our new program. 

Our region remains a top target for terrorism.  Several prior plots to attack this region have involved preoperational activities here in Suffolk County.  Our department has partnered with New York City for many years on a wide variety of initiatives to keep our region and the citizens of our county safe. 

Information sharing is the key to success, whether the topic is ongoing crime trends and patterns, or terrorism related intelligence.  No one is in a better position to identify suspicious activity than our private security partners.  Keeping our communities safe is a joint, shared responsibility, which is the main goal of the SCPD Shield program.  If you have joined SCPD Shield, I congratulate you.  If you are considering it, I strongly encourage you to join us.  Member benefits are numerous, including access to conferences, training and ongoing information sharing.

As the familiar axiom says, united we stand, divided we fall.
