SPEAKER:  Tom Hodgson – Sherriff of Bristol County since 1997

Took TVs out of prisoner’s cells and donated weights to local boys & girls clubs.

Created tandem work crews in Bristol County.

Painted the inside of every senior living center in Taunton.

Started religious retreats in the prisons.

Many prisoners are learning what the word “no” means for the first time.

Many prisoners would prefer to spend more time in prison “upstate” versus serving less time in  Bristol County prison system.

350 Inmates were going to the medical treatment center each week.  When Tom instituted a charge for services, dropped to 100 – 125 inmates per week.

When inmates leave, they receive a bill for services - $5/day for the number of days in prison.  Inmates are told they do not have to pay it if they do not return to prison for 2 years.

Measure 250 metrics every day.

Saved $350,000 on meal costs in just one year.

Don’t serve fried food or coffee.

Single most important issue facing us in law enforcement and this country: illegal immigration.  Our borders are not secure.  Kids are being brought here by cartels – over 1,000 miles over very difficult conditions.  How are we helping these kids?
