The Merrimack County Department of Corrections operates a direct supervision correctional facility located on Daniel Webster Highway in Boscawen, New Hampshire. Our population includes male and female inmates who are awaiting arraignment, pre-trial and/or sentenced, administrative transfers from other correctional facilities, and federal inmates.

Our inmate population also expands into the community. Individuals who have been sentenced by the court and have met all departmental requirements may have the opportunity to be granted the electronic monitoring program and/or be assigned to the County's Successful Offender Adjustment and Re-entry (S.O.A.R) program.
