SHERIFF TOMPKINS, MAYOR WALSH AND CITY OF BOSTON ANNOUNCE RECOVERY PARTNERSHIP

"I want to thank the members of the recovery community, health care providers, elected officials, and representative from the courts for joining me, Mayor Walsh, members of his administration and the Suffolk County Sheriff's Department in support of this powerful new initiative," said Sheriff Tompkins.

"This Recovery Partnership will mean faster, stronger, and better connections for incarcerated individuals leaving our institutions and reentering their neighborhoods. I am so proud to announce this Recovery Partnership with Mayor Walsh and the City of Boston, because it shows our collective desire to work together, our collective agreement to build bridges from inside our institutions out into the community, and our collective rejection of the notion that Boston and Suffolk County can be considered successful without the success of all of our citizens."
