Congratulations to Catherine and Nathaniel, who graduated today from Fairfax County Drug Court. Both graduates thanked their families and the Drug Court multi-agency team for this opportunity. Sheriff Kincaid, the keynote speaker, told the graduates: “You may have needed a second or third chance to achieve this recovery milestone, but you did it.

Aramark's IN2WORK program teaches inmates kitchen basics, restaurant management, and how to be a successful job applicant. Graduates are encouraged to apply for jobs with Aramark upon release. Sheriff Stacey Kincaid is a strong supporter: "Reentry programs such as IN2WORK not only impart valuable skills needed for employment, but they also instill in the individual a sense of pride with each accomplishment and a healthy respect for managers and peers." The goal for all of our inmate programs is to reduce their chances of reoffending and returning to jail. www.fairfaxcounty.gov/sheriff/in2work-offers-hope-and-job-skills-inmates-kitchen-crew

March is Women's History Month. Sheriff Stacey Kincaid made history in 2013 when she became the first woman to be elected sheriff of Fairfax County. "As a leader in a profession where women are greatly under-represented, I strongly encourage young women to consider a career in law enforcement.
