Congratulations to all the grant recipients for vocational and technical training programs. The list of grant recipients includes over 90 institutions and schools, including Sheriff Cocchi and the Hampden County Sheriff’s Department, and several institutions in Hampshire County, but not the Sheriff’s Office.
Expansion of vocational and technical programs, which teach marketable, in-demand skills offering livable wages are a fundamental campaign platform point of #sepedaforsheriff. Having a part-time grant writer on staff, responsible for applications and funding of these programs will allow the facility to meet the demands of the community and the needs of those in our care by offering opportunities for self improvement and success. The Hampshire County Sheriff’s Office deserves a leader like Caitlin with innovative ideas and the drive to implement programs aimed at success while maintaining fiscal responsibility.
