PRS Students Testify Before Grafton County Commission and Grafton County Jail Task Force

On Tuesday, November 1, 2011, three Dartmouth students from the Rockefeller Center Policy Research Shop traveled to Haverhill, NH to address the Grafton County Commission and the Grafton County Jail Task Force. Earlier in the term, County Commissioners Mike Cryans and Ray Burton asked the students to analyze what other counties in New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine have done with their closed jails when new jails are built and to offer options to the Commission and the Task Force regarding the soon to be closed County Correctional Facility. PRS students Michael Sanchez ’13, Marissa Greco ’12, and Rick D’Amato ’13 produced for the Commission a policy brief, “Grafton County Correctional Facility: An Analysis of Options for the Old Grafton County Jail,” and presented their findings in a PowerPoint presentation. The students also responded to questions from the commissioners and task force members.
