Middlesex Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian has been named the 2023 Sheriff of the Year by the Major County Sheriffs of America (MCSA). The award was presented to Sheriff Koutoujian during MCSA’s Winter Conference in Washington, D.C. on Friday, February 9, 2024.


MCSA’s Sheriff of the Year award is named after late Orange County (CA) Sheriff – and former MCSA President – Sandra Hutchens who passed away in 2021.


Sheriff Koutoujian was recognized for his focus on employee wellness, and the innovative correctional programming he has implemented for incarcerated military veterans, emerging adults, those with substance use disorders, and more. He was also applauded for his service as MCSA President from February 2020 – February 2022.  During his tenure, Sheriff Koutoujian worked with two presidential administrations, helped grow MCSA membership by 15 percent while simultaneously increasing the diversity of the membership, and led the organization’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.


“As a professional, there is no greater honor than to be recognized by your peers – inspiring leaders who I truly admire,” said Sheriff Koutoujian.  “As a MCSA member, I have had the incredible opportunity to work alongside some of the most highly regarded corrections and law enforcement leaders on the most pressing issues facing our country. These men and women are dedicated to serving their communities and I am truly proud to count them as friends and colleagues.”
