Following 12 weeks of intensive classroom and hands-on training, 13 new correction officers have taken the oath of office and formally joined the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office as graduates of the 44th Basic Training Academy.

“The work of correction officers is crucial to public safety,” said Middlesex Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian in a Dec. 17 news release.  “Each day, these noble professionals strive to not only watch over those placed with us by the courts, but help prepare them to successfully return to their loved ones and the communities we all call home.  We are incredibly proud to welcome these new officers to our team and look forward to the outstanding contributions they will make today, and in the years ahead.”

New officers successfully completed training in areas focused on office policy and procedures; interpersonal communication; first aid and CPR; and defensive tactics among others. They were also required to pass classroom, physical fitness and firearms tests, as well as participate in on-the-job trainings at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction in Billerica.
