BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum on Monday named a new top prison administrator.

Dave Krabbenhoft, the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation’s head of administration, has been serving as interim director since August, when Leann Bertsch resigned to take a job in the private sector.

The state’s prison system has more than 1,500 inmates, and more than 7,000 people on parole or probation. The agency has a two-year budget of $272 million and about 900 full-time employees.

Krabbenhoft has worked in state government since 1985 at various agencies. He will be paid $165,800 as the agency’s director.
