NH DEPT. OF CORRECTIONS TO LAUNCH NEW OFFENDER DATABASE

(Concord, NH) New Hampshire Department of Corrections (NHDOC) Commissioner Stephen J. Curry announced that a department-wide offender management system is under development.

“This new database will combine two existing databases into a single source enabling the department to better track offender and operational information,” Commissioner Curry said.

“This will be an ongoing effort to create a single offender record keeping and management capability that is seamless and sustainable through the entire lifecycle of an offender's time in the department,” the Commissioner added.

The State of New Hampshire awarded a $1.4 million dollar contact to X-Wave of Augusta and Portland, Maine utilizing funding from a federal grant and previously allotted resources. The company designed and built similar databases for Departments of Correction in Maine and Virginia using a fully-integrated web-based system geared specifically toward Corrections.

The current database has been in use for over ten years. NHDOC projects the new database, which will provide easy access to inmate and probation and parole records, will be completed in June 2006. The first phase, which is the revamped Probation/Parole database will be in place by September 2005.
