Worcester County Sheriff's Office News

On Veterans Day we honor the brave men & women who have served this great country & remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect and defend our freedom. God Bless and thank you.

The recruits of the Worcester County Sheriff's Office 50th Basic Recruit Training Academy spent the entire week training in the use of firearms. This week they trained in pistol marksmanship, weapon retention, night shooting and scenario training with simunition guns.

We are so proud of the extraordinary men and women that we have working at the Worcester County Sheriff's Office and all the effort they put into making this new program such a great success. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Vanessa T. Marcotte Foundation.

"Jail is easy, it's looking at yourself that is the hardest part." those words were spoken yesterday by one our inmates who graduated from our STOP Program. In all, over a dozen inmates also took those steps in their recovery completing six months of highly intensive programming including Recovery Maintenance, Anger Management & Victim Impact. We believe a person should be held accountable for their behavior but to make our community a safer place we must provide opportunity for them to become productive citizens and access recovery support. With the guidance of our dedicated Substance Use Disorder staff, these inmates took the first giant step towards their recovery, stopping the cycle of crime and living a substance-free life.

We are excited to announce the Worcester County Sheriff's Office is once again teaming up with the Worcester Railers HC & Fidelity Bank Worcester Ice Center for the Annual Sheriff's Office Skate & Toy Drive on Saturday, December 1st. With a donation of a new unwrapped toy, enjoy a FREE skate along with Worcester Railers HC players which will go on to benefit the kids of the Boys & Girls Club, Friendly House & Guild of St. Agnes of Worcester.

The Worcester County Sheriff's Office is honored to announce our partnership with the Vanessa T. Marcotte Foundation to present Self-Defense Workshops for Women. Focusing on teaching realistic self-defense tactics, situational awareness skills and how to handle confrontation both verbally and mentally, we held our first class tonight for over 30 women at the Thomas Prince School in Princeton. We have a deep sense of gratitude for the Marcotte Family as well as all of our tremendous WCSO officers who actively sought to participate in this program as self-defense trainers. We look forward to bringing this potentially life saving workshop to different locations throughout Worcester County.

During WEEK 7, the Recruits of the Worcester County Sheriff's Office 50th B.R.T.A. were busy with classroom instruction in crime scene preservation, cultural diversity and use of restraints. The recruits also had a fire safety class with the West Boylston Fire Department.

To make our community a safer place, Re-entry begins at day one at the Worcester County Sheriff's Office. Last spring, we announced the award of a Public Safety Grant to expand our STOP (Substance Treatment Opportunity Program) at the jail. Today, we a proud to share with you our first "Short-Stop" graduating class. This three month intensive cirriculum is made available to our sentenced inmates who have demonstrated behavior towards their recovery and have remained discipline free. With the guidance of our dedicated Substance Use Disorder staff, over two dozen inmates were part of our first graduating class. For these inmates, it was the first giant step towards their recovery and to living a substance-free and productive life upon their release.

The Worcester County Sheriff's Office is very proud of its exemplary use of shelter pets in our correctional facility. Our incredible K9 Unit is comprised of 3 single purpose narcotics detection canines and 1 single purpose trailing bloodhound. All rescue and shelter pets. Our Project Good Dog program, pairs our low risk inmates with shelter pets in need of adoption. To date, all 60 dogs and counting have been placed into loving homes. Last week, we were thrilled to be invited to the Shrewsbury Senior Center, along with our K9 Maya and her law enforcement partner Officer Peter Campo, to discuss these great programs which help make our community safer and help inmates turn their lives around. Dogs are truly man's best friend.

The Worcester County Sheriff's Office K9 Unit must routinely participate in specialized law enforcement training to remain sharp in their skills as well as receive recertification. Most recently, our single purpose trailing bloodhound Maya had four days of training with the Northeast Houndsmen Association. Maya's training included scenario based training on land and by boat with her K9 partner, Officer Peter Campo. We appreciate Maya and all of our incredible K9's at the Sheriff's Department, who work hard everyday to keep us safe.
