SHERIFF CABRAL FEATURED ON COVER OF BOSTON COLLEGE MAGAZINE


Suffolk County Sheriff Andrea J. Cabral is profiled on the cover of the latest edition of Boston College Magazine—an alumni publication that reaches nearly 150,000 Eagle graduates, staff and friends.

Sheriff Cabral, a 1981 graduate of BC, was featured because of her work in the past year reforming and transforming the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department. She was appointed by then-Gov. Jane Swift in December 2002 after former Sheriff Richard Rouse retired. Rouse and the Department were targets of a special commission appointed by the governor to investigate charges of abuse and mismanagement. The report labeled the Department a “deeply troubled institution” and it was up to the next sheriff to bring about reform.

Ben Birnbaum, editor of the magazine, said while it was unusual for the magazine to select profiles for its cover, Sheriff Cabral’s story merited a closer look. “Boston College has many alumni of enormous accomplishment, we select just a handful each year to profile in the magazine. We felt Sheriff Cabral’s work deserved the attention of all alum.”

The magazine is mailed to the school’s alumni, faculty, staff, donors and parents of undergraduates and may be read online on the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department Website or Boston College’s Website.
