Sixteen to Graduate from the New Hampshire Corrections Academy

(Concord, NH) On May 13, 2011, the New Hampshire Department of Corrections pre-service Corrections Academy will end with a graduation ceremony for sixteen recently hired employees. Corrections Academy 92 ran four weeks and all of the new employees report to their assignments immediately.

The employees are already certified or licensed in their specialized fields. The participants received important training that included offender management and communication skills, policies and procedures, Corrections legal issues, emergency preparedness, the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA), defensive tactics, and other topics that will be required when working in a corrections environment. They were also certified in CPR.

This class was made up entirely of non-uniformed employees and was the second “Civilian Academy” the Department had operated. The class included eight medical and mental health professionals, three administrators, two corrections counselors/case managers, two accountants, and one victim advocate.
