From the Desk of Mr. Welch, Criminal Justice Program Field Trip to Suffolk House of Correction

Recently the Criminal Justice Program and Elective visited the Suffolk County House of Correction "South Bay" facility. 36 students toured the facility to see the everyday inner workings, and potential job opportunities. Students got a first hand look at how inmates are processed and classified into the system. Students toured the infirmary ward, several units, including the kitchen.

They also sat with and listened to several female inmates who shared personal stories about their life, and how making bad decisions led them to the House of Correction. Special thanks to Sergeant Regina Williams from the Community Affairs Department for the tour and showing the students the job opportunities that the sheriff department has to offer.
