Federal Prison In Berlin Hiring, Expecting First Prisoners
After several delays the new federal prison in Berlin is getting closer to opening and hiring is underway.
NHPR’s Chris Jensen has an update.
The first prisoners – about 50 minimum security inmates - could arrive at the federal correctional institute in Berlin as early as the end of August, says Judith Nichols, the prison’s spokeswoman.
But that could be pushed back because there is still plenty of hiring to do.
“We are looking to fill 341 positions. We currently have 86 staff that have been hired.”
Nichols says there are job openings in virtually every department from corrections officers to food services.
The prison’s capacity is just over 1,700.
