first_imgGovernor Peter Shumlin announced today that the superintendents of the Chittenden Regional and Northwest State Corrections Facilities in St Albans will switch facilities as part of the inmate relocation planned for later this year.The inmate relocation ‘ moving the female inmates from the St. Albans prison to the Burlington facility, and the men at Chittenden to Northwest State ‘ is part of the Governor’s effort to reduce recidivism in Vermont. There are more services available in Chittenden County to help the female inmates successfully transition out of prison, and the St Albans prison has additional space and more suitable facilities for male inmates.Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility (CRCF) Superintendent Greg Hale and his St. Albans counterpart, Superintendent Dave Turner, requested the job shift.‘Greg’s experience with the male population will be a big asset when the men move to Northwest Regional,’ Gov. Shumlin said. Likewise, he added, ‘Dave has demonstrated compassionate leadership with the challenges experienced with the female population. This shift is a good change for the two superintendents and the inmates.’Hale joined the Corrections Department in 1988 as a correctional officer in the Northwest State Correctional Facility. Prior to his appointment to Superintendent of the Chittenden Regional Facility in 2009, he spent nearly 15 years working in the Burlington Probation and Parole office.Turner joined the Department in 1980, also as a correctional officer in the Northwest State Correctional Facility. When the Northeast Regional Correctional Facility opened in Saint Johnsbury, Dave worked in both the security aspect of corrections and casework. In 2009, he was appointed as the Superintendent of the Northwest State Correctional Facility.  Source: Governor’s office. 4.14.2011last_img
