COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The new director of South Carolina’s probation agency is scheduled to be sworn in.

Jerry Adger will take the oath of office at 10 a.m. Friday from Gov. Nikki Haley to be the new leader at the Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services. The ceremony is taking place at the South Carolina Supreme Court.

Adger’s career in criminal justice began in 1977 as a fingerprint analyst at the FBI. During his 23 years at the State Law Enforcement Division, his jobs ranged from special agent to internal affairs. He went on to the Department of Juvenile Justice and Department of Corrections.

Adger replaces Kela Thomas, whose last day was Jan. 1.

Adger will supervise an agency of 650 employees that oversees about 32,000 people on probation.
