DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - Tom Rime has resigned his position as administrator of the Lake Region Law Enforcement Center in Devils Lake.

Rime tells KZZY radio (https://bit.ly/1R94k6R ) that he and his wife have accepted new jobs in Brainerd, Minnesota, and the move will put him closer to family.

The Law Enforcement Center has dealt with staffing issues and escapes during the past few years. Rime says a recent U.S. Justice Department inspection of the jail provides a road map for moving forward.

Rime says the center has made progress during his 14 months at the helm, and he’s leaving it in a more stable condition.

The Lake Region Law Enforcement board voted Wednesday to put Ramsey County Sheriff Steve Nelson in charge on an interim basis when Rime leaves the position in mid-June.
