The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department will be featured on the MSNBC documentary series “Lockup: Extended Stay” beginning Saturday, July 2nd.

The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department will be featured on the MSNBC network’s “Lockup: Extended Stay” documentary series beginning Saturday, July 2nd at 10 p.m.

First introduced during the summer of 2005, Lockup is described by MSNBC as “a documentary series that gives a glimpse into life behind America’s maximum–security prison walls and exposes conditions at some of the most notorious correctional facilities in the country.”

The Lockup franchise also features several spin–off series including the original Lockup, Lockup: Raw, Lockup: World Tour, and Life After Lockup.

As participants in Lockup: Extended Stay, the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department will be profiled each week over the course of six, one–hour episodes which depict days in the lives of some of the inmates, detainees and members of the Sheriff’s Department staff.

According to Sheriff Andrea J. Cabral, it was this rare opportunity to provide a window into the world of corrections and display the excellence of the custody and non–custody staff at the Suffolk County House of Correction, the Nashua Street Jail and the Chelsea Officer Training Academy that was the impetus for participation in the series.

“It is not often that we have the chance to showcase the excellent work that is being done each and every day by officers and staff here at the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department,” said Sheriff Cabral. “We wanted to take this rare opportunity to show the professionalism and dedication of the men and women who work in this Department.”
