  1. would you by any chance have knowledge of when the listing would be posted of those who passed the exam?Along with how long until they will start the process?

    1. Hi Dallas, I don’t know the answer to that question. If i get any information I will pass it along.

    1. Hi Robert, NYC Deputy Sheriffs are Peace Officers(law Enforcement Officers). They have arrest authority throughout New York State as do other Law Enforcement officers and can retire after 25 years of service. However, their jurisdiction is limited to NYC just like the NYPD.
