As your Sheriff, my first and foremost concern is the safety and well being of the people in Bristol County. Through the efforts of a very supportive staff, we have initiated a number of policies and procedures that teach responsibility, encourage a change in behavior, and prepare inmates for a more productive life after incarceration. 

I am a firm believer that education plays a vital role in the success of our young people. I want to reach youngsters before they enter the system. Through our Office of Community Programs, you can access a number of education and intervention programs specially designed to fit your needs. I encourage you to take advantage of these programs and help us stop the cycle of crime.
