A new warden has been named for the Correctional Alternative Placement Program facility being constructed south of Boise by the Idaho Department of Corrections. The site will be operated by Utah-based Management & Training Corporation.
Brian Finn will oversee new 432-bed, minimum security substance abuse treatment facility as its first warden. Finn, a 14-year corrections veteran, spent most of that time employed by the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services. Most recently Finn has worked as a corrections director at the MTC national headquarters in Centerville, Utah.
Construction is on schedule and on budget, and is expected to begin accepting inmates in May.
Under the five-year operations contract, with a five-year option, MTC will employ about 90 people at the CAPP facility, including: teachers, drug and alcohol treatment counselors, security personnel, management and other support positions. The contract has a total value of approximately $10 million annually.
