Share this post

Officials at Westville Correctional Facility announced last week they will be seeking a new superintendent as current Superintendent Mark Levenhagen has been appointed as the Director of Mental Health and Special Populations for the Indiana Department of Corrections, effective Sunday, June 29th. Levenhagen told the Region News Team the promotion is bitter-sweet because he is happy to have gotten the position, but at the same time he is cutting relationships with people that he has known for a long time.
Levenhagen began his career in corrections at the Westville Correctional Facility in 1985, and was recognized by the Indiana Criminal Justice Association as “Correctional Manager of the Year” in 2012. He says his new job will be to help develop and implement mental health services that the prison system has either not provided, or not provided to the fullest extent.
Levenhagen says the process is underway to find his successor. His last day as Superintendent of the Westville Correctional Facility is this Friday.
