Shifting police responsibilities

Levy removes highway patrol duties on the Long Island Expressway and Sunrise Highway from the Suffolk County police and assigns them to the Sheriff’s Department. Levy says the move will save $10 million a year, though police unions dispute the figure. At left, a sheriff's deputy blocks a lane on Sunrise Highway near Exit 43 in Bay Shore. (March 29, 2009)
