Enlightened And Effective Corrections and Community Engagement

The Hampden County Sheriff’s Office is not your average law enforcement agency.

Behind the walls of our facilities, our firm but fair approach to corrections has been emulated across the country and changed countless lives for the better. We provide empathy and opportunity to all who come under our care and custody with the aim of uplifting individuals and their families.

In the community, Sheriff Nick Cocchi’s ‘never say no’ mantra has evolved the field of community policing, bridging the divide between residents and unmet needs in our neighborhoods. You’ll find our dedicated staff in the parks, on the waterways, in our schools, and on the streets to be a positive, proactive partner for the public good.

If you want to help uplift people on their worst days and make the world a better place, consider joining our team!
