Kingery Construction Partners with NDCS for Community Corrections Center Project
Kingery Construction Co. (www.kccobuilders.com) recently partnered with the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services (NDCS) for the construction of a state-of-the-art, 160-bed female living unit at the Community Corrections Center-Lincoln (CCC-L). Department of Corrections Director Scott Frakes joined Governor Pete Ricketts in opening the facility in March and women began moving into the new facility April 1. The project came in under budget at $21 million. Those savings have been reinvested to help fund a new 100-bed unit at the Nebraska State Penitentiary, as well as other infrastructure needs.
The new female living unit features case management work spaces, classrooms, personal laundry facilities, indoor and outdoor recreation areas, and an outdoor playground for children. Additional visitation space will allow women to reconnect with family members and friends who will support them post-release.
Nebraska Department of Correctional Services operates 10 prisons in five communities in Nebraska. It is the second largest agency in the state and employs approximately 2,300 team members in more than 200 different job classifications. CCC-L is one of two community corrections centers operated by NDCS. Custody at CCC-L is the lowest custody level of the two corrections centers and the least restrictive NDCS facility. Individuals assigned there participate in “work detail” or “work release,” and are allowed to participate in work opportunities, attend school, religious services, and other pro-social activities with prior approval and without direct supervision.
