CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Department of Corrections has a new person in charge of programs for female offenders and family services.
Laura Hardwick, a professor with the Corrections Special School District, has been selected for the position. She’s worked for the department for 11 years and was a professor with The Career and Technical Education Center.
Corrections Commissioner William Wrenn says as the department moves forward toward construction and opening of a new women’s prison, Hardwick will play an important role in the development of gender-specific programs.
About 170 women are serving prison sentences in the state.
