It’s quite an honor for Plymouth County Sheriff Joseph McDonald; he’s been elected president of the Massachusetts Sheriff’s Association, something he calls a privilege.
In a statement, he says ”Working together we have made great strides in making our communities safer and enhancing law enforcement across the Commonwealth.”
McDonald, who previously served as the association’s vice president, will function in the new position through next year.
He says the group will maintain its focus on ways to reduce recidivism and prison overcrowding.
McDonald was first elected Plymouth County Sheriff in 2004.
