Amplifying the Mission

Sheriff Peter Koutoujian’s service is rooted deeply and firmly in gratitude.

The Rappaport Urban Fellowship provides elected and appointed officials from Greater Boston with full-tuition scholarships to attend the Kennedy School of Government's Masters in Public Administration program.

A career public servant, Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian has overseen one of the nation’s oldest law enforcement agencies – the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office – as it has become a premier public safety institution known for innovation and professional excellence.

During his tenure in office, Sheriff Koutoujian has initiated several landmark programs at the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office that have garnered national attention. These include a medication assisted treatment program recognized as a Center of Excellence by the National Institute of Corrections (NIC); the Housing Unit for Military Veterans (HUMV) that has been touted by the Washington Examiner and Vice News Tonight; and a unique unit for young adult offenders that has been called “one of the most important criminal justice reform experiments in the country” by the Boston Globe.
