MSO welcomes interns from the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office B ILLERICA – The Middlesex Sheriff’s Office (MSO) recently welcomed interns from the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office for a pair of tours at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction. “The relationship between our office and the district attorney’s is crucial to maintaining and enhancing public safety,” said Middlesex Sheriff Peter Koutoujian. “Providing these interns a first-hand look at the programs and services we provide those in our custody will better prepare them should they choose careers as prosecutors here in Middlesex County. I want to thank District Attorney Marian Ryan and her team for the opportunity to talk about the incredible work our team of dedicated corrections professionals does on a daily basis.” Two groups visited the facility over the course of two days, with interns learning about legal access; video court proceedings; medical, mental health and substance abuse treatment; specialty programs like the Housing Unit for Military Veterans; and the women’s prerelease program that was launched earlier this year. “Each year our interns participate in a robust program to maximize their education about all aspects of the District Attorney’s Office,” said Ryan. “Our partnership with the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office is a critical component of that training. In Middlesex County we are lucky to have many innovative prevention and treatment programs that help rehabilitate those in the criminal system and reduce recidivism. The work we do alongside Sheriff Koutoujian helps us to look at the whole person to ensure our system is not solely punitive. It adds a tremendous value to our intern program to allow these students to see some of that work first-hand.” Nick Mazzie kicks off for Central Catholic. (Courtesy photo)
