Suffolk County Sheriff Steven W. Tompkins and members of the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department recently visited Chelsea City Hall to bring the Department’s Mobile Job Fair program to local residents. The Mobile Job Fair program, which kicked off this past August at the Dorchester House Multiservice Center, will continue to visit the neighborhoods of Suffolk County to inform residents about available employment opportunities within the Department and assist them with the application process.

The Department is currently recruiting candidates to become Suffolk County Correction Officers, a position for which candidates must successfully complete a twelve–week training academy requiring intensive instruction in a host of practical and classroom subjects that include: ethics and professionalism, suicide prevention, use of force continuum, firearm safety and handling, inmate education and programming, contraband control, courtroom testimony, CORI and inmate rights and responsibilities, fire safety, CPR, sexual harassment, cross–gender supervision and report writing.

During the Mobile Job Fair, members of the Department’s correction officer cadre, Human Resources Division and External Affairs and Communications Division joined Sheriff Tompkins as he greeted prospective employees, talking to them about building a career in law enforcement and about the advantages of working for the Sheriff’s Department. Chelsea City Councilor At–Large Leo Robinson was also present and later interviewed Sheriff Tompkins about the inspiration behind his creation of the Mobile Job Fair program.

“I’m eager to get more Suffolk County Residents aligned with the Department,” said Sheriff Tompkins. “The more officers and personnel that we can get from Suffolk County, the better, but I think it’s also important for the Sheriff’s Department to go out and be actively seen in the communities that we work with so that instead of having everyone come to us or go to our website, we go out to the communities and make ourselves available.”

The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department will also be recruiting at the Community Career Fair, sponsored by Roxbury Community College, JobNet One Stop Career Center and The Workplace on Tuesday, October 22nd from 12:00am to 4:00pm at Roxbury Community College inside the Student Center Building 4, Room 200, located at 1234 Columbus Avenue.
