WEST BOYLSTON – Eleven graduates of the 53rd class of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office Basic Recruit Training Academy took their official oath on Friday, May 22.

The previous 52 graduate classes from the Academy had large graduation ceremonies, but, this year, graduates attended a brief, socially distanced ceremony on the grounds of the Sheriff’s Department.

Sheriff Lew Evangelidis presided over the ceremony and administered the oath.

Evangelidis said, “In this uncertain time, we felt it was important to recognize the hard work and accomplishments of our newest correctional officers.  I know the recruits and their families appreciated the small, safe and private ceremony we provided. Now, they will begin the important work done every day at the Sheriff’s Department to help protect public safety and make Worcester County a safer place.”
