James David Green Promoted to Warden at Bell County Forestry Camp
Kentucky Department of Corrections Commissioner LaDonna Thompson today announced the promotion of James David Green to warden of the Bell County Forestry Camp.
Green takes the reins from Kathy Litteral, who was recently promoted to warden at Eastern Kentucky Correctional Complex. Green began his career in 1989 as a correctional officer at the Eastern Kentucky Correctional Complex (EKCC) in West Liberty. He was a member of the original group of officers hired when EKCC opened. He was promoted through the security ranks at EKCC and held the positions of sergeant, lieutenant, operations lieutenant and shift captain. While at EKCC, Green also served as the Hostage Negotiations Team (HNT) leader.
In 2005, Green was promoted to unit administrator II at the Little Sandy Correctional Complex (LSCC), where he again served as the HNT leader. In 2010, he was promoted to senior captain at LSCC and promoted later that same year to deputy warden at LSCC.
“David Green has been a valuable member of the Department of Corrections team for many years,” said Thompson. “He brings a vast amount of experience to his new role as warden and I know he will do an excellent job for Bell County Forestry Camp and the department as a whole.”
During his 26-year career Green has been recognized with numerous awards including the DOC Achievement Award and multiple supervisor of the quarter awards.
