NEW WARDEN APPOINTED FOR NH WOMEN'S PRISON

(Portsmouth, NH) New Hampshire Department of Corrections Commissioner Phil Stanley announced that the Governor and Executive Council by unanimous vote appointed Richard M. Gerry as Warden of the New Hampshire State Prison for Women in Goffstown.

Gerry, 47, was Administrator for Security at the New Hampshire State Prison for Men in Concord from 1995 until 2001. From October 2000-March 2001, Gerry was Acting-Warden of the Men's Prison.

From 1985-1995, Gerry was a Criminal Investigator in the office of the New Hampshire Attorney General. Prior to that he was a State Trooper with the New Hampshire State Police.

"Dick comes highly qualified with twenty-four years experience in law enforcement and corrections. He is an excellent choice for Warden at the Women's Prison," Stanley said.

Gerry becomes the third Warden of the Women's Prison since it opened in 1988. The institution houses approximately 100 female offenders and employs 40 staff.
