New warden named at Central Prison

Carlton Joyner, a longtime employee of the state’s prison system, has been named the new warden at Central Prison in Raleigh.

He replaces Kenneth Lassister, who was promoted in May to the position of central regional prison director.

Joyner has been the administrator at Harnett Correctional Institution in Lillington. He has risen through the ranks from correctional officer at Central Prison in 1984, and has worked at prisons in Wake, Durham and Orange counties.

He was promoted to programs director for the entire system in 2004, and in 2010 took on the Harnett job. He has a bachelor’s degree in public administration from N.C. Central University.

Central Prison has about 1,000 prisoners and a staff of 700. It holds the state’s execution chamber, a full-service hospital and a mental health unit.
