PROVEN RECORD OF EXCELLENCE

Sheriff Nick Cocchi

The office of sheriff exists to serve the people of Hampden County. For our justice-involved population, we start planning their return to their families and the community on day one of their incarceration. Anyone willing to make a change will leave our custody with the hand-up they need to successfully live a life free from violence and crime. In the community, I feel our responsibility lies with identifying places where we can be of assistance, and doing whatever it takes to get the job done, for the people.

ENDORSEMENTS

State Senator John Velis, Westfield

“Nick Cocchi exudes everything you want and need in a sheriff; empathy; compassion; and most importantly, selflessness. He has been a trailblazer in so many areas like Section 35 and Substance Use Disorders; behavioral and mental health, to name a few. The only thing Sheriff Cocchi does better at than being the best sheriff in Massachusetts is being one of the kindest human beings I have ever met. He is a gift to our county.”

Mayor Domenic Sarno, Springfield

“Sheriff Cocchi has a proven record of accomplishment and his work speaks for itself. He and his team’s efforts to not only be firm, but fair in empowering those who have been incarcerated towards a positive path of re-entry. Also, his efforts with Section 35 drug rehab program are outstanding – he’s saved and turned around so many lives and families. It is my pleasure and honor to stand with my friend, our Sheriff Nick Cocchi.”
