Mass. Sheriff's Department welcomes new officers
By Jim Montalto, Corrections.com News Editor
BOSTON, MA - Twenty-five new COs were recently sworn in for duty with the Suffolk County Sheriff's Department in a ceremony that marked the department's twelfth class to graduate under Sheriff Andrea J. Cabral.
"Corrections officers are the unsung arm of law enforcement," said Special Sheriff Gerard Horgan, who presided over the ceremony and addressed the graduates and their families. "We wish you well in this noble profession that you have chosen. Congratulations to you all and I wish you well in the department."
Graduates receiving special recognition included Jawara Moseley, who received the Academic Citation Award; Kevin McDonnell, who won the Academic Award; Adam Vecchione who was honored with the Drill Instructor award; and William Farrell, who received the Top Gun Award. Also being honored were Justin Dymon for physical training and Bandith Udomsay for defensive tactics; and Assistant Deputy Superintendent Yolanda Smith commended the graduates for their perseverance and commitment.
"The training was challenging in so many different ways," said ADS Smith. "You've experienced quite a bit of intensity but you embraced the concept of teamwork rather quickly. It reminds me of a statement made to me by one of the graduates, that 'A class lacking unity is a class drowning in mediocrity.' I want to wish you all success as you face your new challenges together."
The officers will begin their duty at the South Bay House of Correction.
