|Charles Daniels named Nevada corrections chief|
CARSON CITY — Gov. Steve Sisolak on Monday announced the appointment of a former federal prison official to lead the Nevada Department of Corrections.
Charles Daniels, who spent 28 years working for the Federal Bureau of Prisons, was tapped to replace former director James Dzurenda, who resigned from the post in August.
“Charles has had a long and respected career as a corrections professional in the state and federal systems,” Sisolak said in a statement. “Charles brings more than three decades of knowledge, management experience, and perspective that will bring needed structure, accountability, and reform to the Nevada Department of Corrections. I have full confidence in Charles’ abilities, and I look forward to working with him to improve our state prison system.”
Daniels retired from the federal prison system in 2016 which included stints as a prison warden in Texas and Indiana, according a release from the governor’s office.
