Fifteen to Graduate From the NH Corrections Academy

(Concord, NH) On Friday, March 15, 2013, the New Hampshire Department of Corrections pre-service Corrections Academy will end with a graduation ceremony for fifteen recently hired Corrections Officers. Corrections Academy 95 ran nine weeks and all of the new employees report to their assignments immediately. New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan is scheduled to attend the graduation ceremony which takes place at the Arthur D. Kehas Law Enforcement Training Center and Campus.

The graduates will be assigned to the New Hampshire State Prison in Concord, the New Hampshire State Prison for Women in Goffstown, the Northern NH Correctional Facility in Berlin, The Corrections Transitional Housing Unit in Concord, and the Secure Psychiatric Unit/Residential Treatment Unit in Concord.

The mandatory nine-week pre-service academy provided new staff with the tools to succeed as Corrections employees. 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.
