CONCORD, N.H. — The new women’s prison in New Hampshire includes a full service health services unit, a large educational area, and a family center.
Officials held a ribbon-cutting for the 101,000-square-foot facility in Concord on Monday.
The prison is triple the size of the prison in Goffstown. The new facility has room for 224 women.
Inmates have not been moved to the new prison yet.
The Department of Corrections also has launched a marketing campaign in an effort to recruit new corrections officer candidates for all of its facilities. Visitors can find more information at www.nhdocjobs.com .
