(Loudon, NH) On August 15, 2007 a unique cross-section of ten correctional staff from the New Hampshire Department of Corrections (NHDOC) participated in the 17th Annual State Police DARE Classic Road Race at the New Hampshire International Speedway. The following staff conquered the 3.1 mile course, which included approximately 350 other runners:

Correctional Officer Tammy MacLeod
Sergeant Joey Pomerleau
Corrections Officer Ryan Flynn
Secure Psychiatric Unit/Residential Treatment Unit, Concord
Correctional Officer Ben Densmore
Division of Field Services
Probation/Parole Officer Chris Regan, Exeter District Office

Over sixteen different law enforcement agencies participated, with the NHDOC team garnering fourth place among the law enforcement teams with combined times. Individually, Unit Manager Anderson secured Second Place in the Women’s Law Enforcement Division among her age group. Congratulations on a hard run Kathleen!
This team of staff is committed to presenting a positive departmental image to other law enforcement agencies and citizens throughout the state of New Hampshire. As reflected by the variety of duties and responsibilities represented on this team, a career in State Corrections can take many exciting and rewarding paths.
This race is organized each year by the New Hampshire State Police DARE Program. DARE stands for Drug, Abuse, Resistance, Education and the program is designed to educate the youth of New Hampshire on the dangers of alcohol and controlled substances. An outstanding benefit of the program is the placing of a police officer in the classroom, thereby building a positive image of law enforcement among our state’s young people.
