Kentucky Department of Corrections Communications Director Lisa Lamb today announced that Tammy Lou Wright has been promoted to branch manager of the department’s Victim Services Branch. She assumed her new duties Nov. 16.
“Wright is dedicated to helping victims of crime across the state with their many concerns,” said Lamb. “Her time working in various areas of the department provides a wonderful range of experience to assist victims as they seek to understand the incarceration of their offenders.”
Wright began her career with DOC in 2001. During her years of service, she has moved up the ranks, holding positions in the Division of Probation and Parole, at Northpoint Training Center, and at central office with classification and home incarceration.

In 2013 she was promoted to internal policy analyst III and oversaw operation of Kentucky’s three automated Victim Information Notification Everyday (VINE) services.
In 2014 Wright was elected to represent the nation’s VINE program managers on the national VINE Advisory Committee (VAC). She recently was appointed by Gov. Steve Beshear to serve as a member of the Kentucky Council for Interstate Adult Offender Supervision. Wright served two terms as state president for Kentucky Council on Crime & Delinquency (KCCD). She is a graduate of the 2013 Commissioner’s Executive Leadership Program and a recipient of a 2010 Commissioner’s Award.
