KCC Superintendent Retires After 30 Years
Acting Superintendent Named


June 12, 2008

Ketchikan, Alaska - The Alaska Department of Corrections announced the retirement of Alan Bailey, who has been superintendent of the Ketchikan Correctional Center since July 16, 1988. Superintendent Bailey oversaw his facilities accreditation from the American Correctional Association.

The department has selected Lt. Diane Gregory as acting superintendent.

Superintendent Bailey began his career with the (then) Division of Corrections in Fairbanks as a Correctional Officer. In 1978 he promoted to training officer and transferred to Anchorage. Bailey began working for Juvenile Probation in 1980 but returned to the department in 1984.

Bailey was given a Certificate of Distinguished Public Service in 1990, and was 'top gun' in a number of law enforcement shooting challenges.

"The department will miss Superintendent Bailey. We're losing a lot of institutional knowledge with Alan's retirement, although we certainly wish him a very happy future," said Commissioner Joe Schmidt.
