Worcester County Sheriff Lew Evangelidis announced Assistant Deputy Superintendent Christopher Brothers, a 25-year veteran of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, has received a major promotion to the position of assistant superintendent of operations. In his new role, Brothers will be responsible for the daily security operations of the entire correctional facility, which can house up to 1,100 male inmates and will also be charged with overseeing all correctional staff, monitoring inmate activity and ensuring the safety of both staff and inmates.
Brothers’ promotion is effective immediately. Brothers was most recently assigned as a deputy of training and medium A operations.
In 1995, Brothers started his career with the Worcester County Sheriff’s Department and was promoted to sergeant in October 2005, lieutenant in July 2009 and promoted to captain in April 2014. In October 2015, Sheriff Evangelidis promoted him to assistant deputy superintendent of the training department, where he oversaw operations including the hands-on training of all basic recruit training academies required for all new correctional officers.
“Throughout his impressive career at WCSO, Assistant Superintendent Brothers has demonstrated the leadership, sound judgment and professionalism that is a model for all of our staff,” said Sheriff Evangelidis. “His ability to not only solve problems, but more importantly in the world of corrections, anticipate and prevent security issues, will undoubtedly help keep all of the staff and inmates at WCSO safe.”
Brothers obtained his Bachelor of Arts Degree from Syracuse University and a Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Westfield State University. He is a native of Uxbridge and now resides in Millbury.
