Warden takes on new law enforcement role

BY STACI WILSON

Susquehanna County Correctional Facility warden Nicholas Conigliaro will be taking on a new role in law enforcement.

The County Commissioners approved Conigliaro’s transfer to the newly created Community Corrections Officer position at the July 9 meeting, per the recommendation of the Prison Board. The Prison Board is comprised of the commissioners, Sheriff Lance Benedict and District Attorney Jason Legg.

But Conigliaro’s transfer won’t take place until a new warden is hired for the jail.

Commissioner Alan Hall said that the Community Corrections Officer will be responsible for the operational functions at the jail; as well as keep track of those on bail supervision and work release.

The jail will see some other changes to personnel, with status changes made for several corrections officers, as well as the hiring of one part-time CO, and the resignation of another corrections officer:

*Jordan Smith, of Montrose, was hired as a part-time corrections officer, effective June 25;

*Carrie Guzy moved from part-time to full-time, effective May 8;

*Emily Gow changed from part-time to full-time, effective June 5;

*Jamie Plymill moved part-time to full-time, effective May 29;

*Curtis Walker went from part-time to full-time, effective June 12;

*Ronald Gregory changed from part-time to full-time, effective June 6.

*Justin Poklemba from full-time to part-time CO, effective June 6.
