  •  I'm surprised MA still has Sheriffs Departments . (8+ / 0-)

    because much like county governments in MA they really don't serve a purpose.

    Unlike some some other states every sq. mi. of MA is incorporated into one of 351 cities/towns or villages.  The main functions of a county in MA, is the DA, Land Registry and the Sheriffs Depts(which mostly means running the county House of Correction aka jail). Everything is run by the city, town or village.

    Some counties have already been abolished over the years in the central part of the state.
