WEST BOYLSTON – As we settle into the New Year, Sheriff Lewis Evangelidis looks ahead to 2022 and shares his goals for the months ahead.

The Worcester County Jail and House of Correction was built on a solid foundation of public safety and professionalism by eliminating patronage and politics at the jail.

Throughout his 11- year tenure, the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) maintains the highest hiring standards in corrections today. All Worcester County correctional officers must have an associate’s degree or at least two years of military service. Additionally, Evangelidis is the only sheriff in the Commonwealth to decline donations from employees and their spouses.

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Evangelidis remains vigilant in his pursuit to ensure the highest level of safety, both within the walls of the facility and throughout the community.
