|New Stillwater warden sworn in, says 'safe and secure facility' is top priority|
|By presspubs.com- Elizabeth Callen|
The Stillwater prison has a new leader at its helm.
Guy Bosch began his duties as warden of the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Stillwater July 1. On Aug. 19, he was officially sworn in to the new role in a special installation ceremony— a new tradition for the Department of Corrections (DOC).
Bosch comes to Stillwater's correctional facility from that of Shakopee, where he most recently served as associate warden of operations. He began his career with Minnesota's DOC three decades ago, initially starting as a corrections officer at the St. Cloud facility.
The new role places Bosch at the head of Minnesota's largest maximum-security prison—the Stillwater facility houses 1,600 inmates in seven different living areas. It is also one of several Minnesota prisons that will change leadership this year. In June, the corrections department announced that it would shift warden assignments at seven of the state's 10 correctional facilities in an effort to bring in new perspectives and skillsets.
