Nine New Employees Complete Corrections Civilian Academy
(Concord, N.H.) The New Hampshire Department of Corrections announces that nine recently hired non-uniformed civilian employees completed the week long civilian academy run by the Department’s Training Bureau.
These employees are already certified or licensed in their individual fields but must still obtain the basic certifications required of all Corrections employees. Because they may interact with the offender population they are required to be skilled in offender management and communication and department policies and procedures. They are not required to be certified in the use of firearms or defensive tactics. The one week academy is classroom based training that occurs at the New Hampshire Police Standards and Training Council in Concord.
Corrections Commissioner William L. Wrenn and Director of Training and Security Christopher H. Kench officially welcomed the employees to the Department at the conclusion of this week’s training.
Three of the graduates will be assigned to the New Hampshire State Prison for Men in Concord, two to the Northern New Hampshire Correctional Facility in Berlin, two the New Hampshire State Prison for Women in Goffstown, and two to the Department’s Human Resources Bureau in Concord.
