New Hampshire Corrections Lieutenant Awarded the Honorable Service Medal

(Concord, NH) New Hampshire Department of Corrections Commissioner William L. Wrenn presented the Department’s Honorable Service medal to a veteran Corrections Officer at the New Hampshire State Prison for Men in Concord.

Lt. James J. Brown was recognized for his eighteen years of devotion to duty, service to the public and his commitment to the Department and the corrections profession. Some of his accomplishments included the development of the Field Training Officer’s program, his assistance in the 2000 opening of the Northern New Hampshire Correctional Facility in Berlin, his activity on the Department’s Special Emergency Response Team (SERT), and his assistance to the Department’s Investigations unit.

Lt. Brown has managed many different housing units and provided Corrections training in New Hampshire and nationally.

Commissioner Wrenn said, “Lt. Brown has strived to be the best and has carried out his duties with honor and professionalism and has presented himself as an employee all staff can look up to as a positive role model. He is well deserving of the Honorable Service medal.”

Lt. Brown has worked for the Department of Corrections since February 4, 1994 and is currently the Chief Security Officer for the Medium Custody South Unit in the New Hampshire State Prison.
