James River Correctional Center has announced the following promotions:
Connie Hackman-Rivinius was promoted from training officer to chief of security effective Dec. 15. Hackman-Rivinius started working with the Department of Corrections as a correctional officer in May 1995 at the North Dakota State Penitentiary in Bismarck. She was promoted to the position of caseworker in July 1997. In May 1998, Hackman-Rivinius was promoted to lieutenant and moved to Jamestown when the James River Correctional Center opened. She assumed the duties of correctional case manager in June 2001, when the fifth and sixth floor housing units were opened.
Correctional Officer Brent Stein was chosen as employee of the month for February for the James River Correctional Center. Officer Stein has been assigned to the Special Assistance Unit for approximately two years, where JRCC officials said he has developed “an excellent working relationship with inmates and staff alike.”
To reduce crime and the expense to incarcerate those who commit it, the state offers felons financial stability — or at least a means to get there.
North Dakota incarcerates about 1,000 inmates a year, and room and board costs about $30,000 for each one.
Jeff Lorenz, safety officer at James River Correctional Center, recently graduated from a staff and command program in Bismarck taught by the School of Police Staff and Command at Northwestern University, Evanston, Ill.
Correctional Officer II Jeff Beyer was chosen as employee of the month for September for the James River Correctional Center. Beyer was assigned to the night shift for two years and can be relied upon to complete his assigned duties with limited or no supervision.
Licensed Addiction Counselor Jennifer Wanzek was chosen as employee of the month for May for the James River Correctional Center. Wanzek is aware of numerous different counseling approaches and uses them appropriately based on the needs of the inmates she works with. Her clinical and assessment skills are accurate.
The James River Correctional Center recently promoted Correctional Caseworker Lyle Mee to correctional case manager effective Aug. 1. Mee worked for JRCC as a correctional officer from July 1999 to December 1999. He returned to JRCC in December 2000 and has worked there since. He was promoted to Correctional Caseworker in May 2006.
