Fourteen-year corrections veteran, Fred Nichols, whose experience includes work at Arizona, Idaho and Oregon corrections departments, has become New Hampshire’s new correctional industries administrator.
“Mr. Nichols brings sound skills in fiscal management, entrepreneurship, manufacturing operations, correctional security, inmate training, and an understanding of working within government systems,” New Hampshire Department of Corrections Commissioner William Wrenn said.
The NHDOC’s correctional industries program is a self-funded program that provides training and manufacturing job skills to approximately 300 inmates. Its plants provide license plate, sign, print, wood shop, and information technology services, as well as furniture repair and manufacturing.
It also operates the corrections retail store, Corrections Creations. According to the NHDOC, the correctional industries program brings in about $2 million in annual sales.
