Special thanks to DOC Commissioner William Wrenn for agreeing to meet with the members and friends of NH Citizens for Criminal Justice Reform.  Approximately 50 people gathered at the Concordia Lutheran Church Tuesday, on January 20th, representing a multiplicity of concerns surrounding their incarcerated loved one. Commissioner Wrenn listened and responded to each and every inquiry and stated that he has an open door policy inviting any family member to call him with issues or concerns.  We appreciate the cooperative spirit of the Commissioner and look forward to working with him in the future.
