Please join Suffolk County Sheriff's Department's community forum series, "Directions for Corrections," which will be held on June 18th, 2014 in the Roxbury Community College Media Arts Center from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.

This community forum will feature an informative discussion about reentry programming and services for ex-offenders who are returning to society. The purpose of this gathering is to educate the community regarding these services and to provide public citizens with information that they can easily utilize.

Sheriff Steven W. Tompkins will be moderating this forum, which has been established to give recognized leaders and experts in the fields of criminal justice, education, business, politics, social work and religion the opportunity to offer their insights and perspectives on current and recurring issues. Using this series of forums, Directions for Corrections is educational and interactive with the very specific goal of raising public awareness and increasing individual and group participation in issues of importance to the communities we serve. Each forum has a specific topic and a selected panel representing a range of expertise on the topic.
