Detective Investigator's PBA
Welcome to the official website of the Suffolk County Detective Investigator’s Police Benevolent Association.
About the SCDI PBA
For over 50 years, Detective Investigators have served the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office with honor and distinction. Early Detective Investigators acted as special appointees of the District Attorney. In 1968, the Detective Investigator position became a competitive civil service appointment requiring highly specialized educational and law enforcement qualifications. Due to the rigid qualifications Detective Investigators come with extensive law enforcement backgrounds and expertise. Today's Detective Investigators function as the law enforcement arm of the District Attorney's office, participating in a broad range of criminal investigations, from economic crimes to international narcotics trafficking. Detective Investigators are classified "Police Officers" under the New York State Criminal Procedure Law, with county-wide jurisdiction to enforce all laws of the state.
