The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department is committed to inmate rehabilitation and successful integration back to the community upon an individual’s release. One of the components, which help ensure a successful reentry, is employment. In recognizing this, Sheriff Steven W. Tompkins and Sheriff’s Department staff has effectively responded and created vocational and job training opportunities for offenders.

Through several job fairs, as well as intensive vocational training in areas such as food sanitation, graphic arts, carpentry and a community works program. Offenders are provided extensive job training options to reduce their chance of recidivism. The Sheriff’s Department also partners with several organizations to provide employment services to offenders, including Bunker Hill Community College, One Stop Career Centers, Veterans Educational Training Program, University of Massachusetts/ Boston and Economic Development Industrial Organization, U.S. Department of Education and The Workplace.
