Department of Corrections Picks New Administrator for Female Programs

(Concord, NH) New Hampshire Department of Corrections Commissioner William L. Wrenn announces that a new Administrator for Women Offenders and Family Services has been appointed. Laura Hardwick, a veteran professor with the Corrections Special School District, was selected for the position.

In 2006, the New Hampshire Legislature established this position to serve as a statewide policy advisor on issues concerning women offenders. The Administrator will provide technical assistance, plan and evaluate gender specific programming, and develop the resources needed to achieve the best possible outcomes for women and families.

Administrator Hardwick has worked for the Department for 11 years and was a professor with The Career and Technical Education Center.

“As the Department moves forward toward the construction and opening of a new women’s prison Laura will play an important role in the development and implementation of evidence-based gender-specific programs that will meet the needs of this population in the years ahead,” Commissioner Wrenn said.

Approximately 170 women are serving prison sentences in the State of New Hampshire.
