Middlesex Sheriff’s Office Youth Academy

I attended the graduation at the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office Youth Academy in Billerica yesterday, great group of  kids from Bedford, Waltham and Watertown, especially proud of the kids from Tyngsborough who let me know they were the loudest group of all.   During the 5 days they attended this academy the forty-four (44) kids from Tyngsborough learned about law enforcement, corrections and were specifically taught in areas of trust, respect, teamwork and safety.  Thank you to all the parents who took the time to send their children to this valuable experience, and thank you to the Middlesex Sheriff’s office for providing this great opportunity for our community.
