New Corrections Officers Graduate from Corrections Academy
(Concord, N.H) The New Hampshire Department of Corrections announces that the 96th Corrections Academy class will graduate from the nine week pre-service training at a November 1, 2013 ceremony to be held at the Arthur D. Kehas Law Enforcement Training Center at the New Hampshire Police Standards and Training Council facility.
The mandatory nine week academy provides the new officers with the tools and resources needed to work in a correctional environment. This class is made up of nine Corrections Officers who will be assigned to the New Hampshire State Prison for Men in Concord, the New Hampshire State Prison for Women in Goffstown, and the Secure Psychiatric Unit/Residential Treatment Unit in Concord.
The employees received training in offender management, inter-personal communication, emergency preparedness, CPR, basic New Hampshire law, health and fitness, and a variety of other skills. The Corrections Officers were certified in firearms and defensive tactics. They resolved a series of scenarios to simulate the unpredictable challenges that they face daily behind prison walls.
