SHERIFF TOMPKINS WELCOMES LAW STUDENTS FROM NORTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY

Visitors from the Northeastern University School of Law participated in a brief tour of the Suffolk County House of Correction earlier this month. Organized by Reverend Willie Bodrick, II - Assistant Pastor of Twelfth Baptist Church in Roxbury - and led by Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department Assistant Deputy Superintendent Rachelle Steinberg, the tour covered several hubs of activity within the facility including the Education Division, Booking, a women’s unit, a segregation unit, the Ricky Dever Medical Unit, and Women’s Programming, before concluding with an in-depth question and answer session with ADS Steinberg, who elded a series of thoughtful questions from the inquisitive group.
