DES MOINES – The Iowa Board of Corrections voted Friday in support of two new wardens to join the Iowa Department of Corrections. The Board approved the Department’s selection of Kristofer Karberg as the Warden of the Anamosa State Penitentiary, and Nicholas Lamb as the Warden of the Fort Dodge Correctional Facility. Both of these candidates were recommended to the Board by a department hiring committee.

Karberg comes to Iowa from the South Dakota Department of Corrections where he has served for over eight years; he currently serves as the Deputy Warden of the Mike Durfee State Prison in Springfield. Prior to joining the SDDOC, he worked for the State Department as Site Commander of Security at the US Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan. In total, he brings more than 28 years of security operations experience to his new role in leading the ASP team.

Lamb comes to Iowa from the New Mexico Department of Corrections where he has served as the Deputy Warden of Administration since November of 2020. Prior to joining the NMDOC, he served in many positions throughout his 26-year-career in the Illinois Department of Corrections, where he most recently served as Assistant Warden of Operations at Stateville Correctional Center prior to his retirement from the IL DOC in 2020.

Commenting on the newly appointed wardens, Department Director Beth Skinner said the following: “I am extremely excited to have both Warden Karberg and Warden Lamb joining the Iowa DOC team. These individuals bring unique skillsets to their respective prisons where they will be leading teams of outstanding correctional staff. While both of these wardens bring different work experiences to their new roles, they both have proven to be effective leaders that understand the balance in providing reliable security while also ensuring effective treatment of those under our supervision is taking place, which is at the heart of our role as an agency.”

    Good job for a woman. Everyone knows correctional officers have trouble walking, talking, and chewing gum. Skinner, a loser job for a loser woman. Just one persons opinion.

      What job are you referring to because your rambling gibberish doesn’t make much sense.

        Before you offer opinions on this site, suggest you learn to read. My message speaks for itself.

    Say what you want, she’s nothing but a glorified prison warden as far as I am concerned.

    Open short sleeve shirt, logo t-shirt underneath, star tattoo on forearm. Not exactly professional but about what you would expect from a prison warden.

          The Republicant party people are the ones who think only men should have tattoos. Why should you care how anyone other than yourself expresses their personality?

          Btw, I echo in pointing out your lack of reading or lack of reading comprehension skills. Let me point out the last paragraph to you… “Commenting on the newly appointed wardens, Department Director Beth Skinner said the following: “

      ” Not exactly professional but about what you would expect from a prison warden.”

      Happens to be Dr. Beth Skinner, Director of the Iowa Department of Corrections.

      I guess that’s not professional enough for you, but, I flip flop on every answer and talk in complete circles Anthony Fauci is. We all know he has been wrong on everything, and just saying what the Chinese government wants him to. Sounds like Pedo Joe the puppet.
