Chief George McNeil is a lifetime law enforcement
professional, having graduated first in his Police Academy
class, and subsequently working his way through the ranks
of the Randolph Police Department until becoming Police
Chief in Somerset in 2014; recently retiring. He was also an
adjunct professor at Bridgewater State University for 11
years. He holds a Master's Degree in Criminal Justice and
a Bachelor's Degree in Animal Science.
Chief McNeil believes that reducing Bristol County's high
recidivism rate is the most effective way he can improve the
safety of communities. It is imperative to restore integrity,
transparency and accountability to the Sheriff's Office.
Resources need to be directed to the rank and file, not to a top-heavy upper management structure. Working conditions and retention of officer's will be a top priority.
McNeil is keenly aware of the deteriorating conditions within the Bristol County jail system which makes the safety of the detainees and officers unsafe. These issues will be addressed immediately. Chief McNeil has spent his entire career making communities a better place to live, as well as improving the work place of his officers. He will do the same as Bristol County Sheriff.
It's time for a career criminal justice professional - Not a career politician.
