New director in town

New Corrections Director

ROCHESTER, Minn. – There is a new man in charge of a southern Minnesota corrections system.

Travis Gransee has been in the field of corrections for nearly two decades. He has also worked as a supervisor in juvenile probation with the Dodge-Fillmore-Olmsted (DFO) Community Corrections.

For just over a week now, he has filled the DFO director chair left by Shelley McBride.

“We plan to continue just moving forward with a lot of the initiatives that we’ve started, and I think that we’re in a good spot to do that right now. We’ve got a really strong staff here at DFO, so that makes this job really exciting,” Gransee said.

He said his former role as a juvenile supervisor should transition well into his new role.

“There’s a lot of similarities between working with adolescents and working with adults. I think what we find is that when you really figure out what the core issues are, whether it’s juveniles or adults, it’s those things that we need to address,” Gransee said.

DFO Community Corrections provides supervision and corrections services to adults and juveniles in the three counties. They also provide victim services.
