SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A new interim deputy director has been named for the Oregon Department of Corrections.

The agency said in a news release that Corrections Director Colette S. Peters appointed Brian Belleque to the position, effective Thursday.

The appointment follows the resignation of Kim Brockamp, who was appointed to the job in January 2015.

The agency says Belleque has worked in corrections since 1983 after earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminology from Southern Oregon State College.

He became a lieutenant and captain and then institution security manager at the Oregon State Correctional Institution in Salem. Belleque’s also held the position of assistant superintendent of security at the Oregon State Penitentiary in Salem and was later named superintendent.

He’s been the Westside Institutions administrator since 2009.
