State Corrections Director Scott Frakes appointed Taggart Boyd as the new warden.
Boyd will join the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services December 29th.
Boyd is deputy warden of operations at the North Central Correctional Complex, a privately-owned minimum-medium security men’s prison in Marion, Ohio.
“I am pleased to add Taggart Boyd to the NDCS team,” Frakes said in a written statement released by his office. “His experience in security and programming is an excellent fit for DEC/LCC. The new perspective based on his Ohio experiences will benefit the entire agency.”
Boyd first worked in corrections in 1998 as a correctional officer at the Marion Correctional Institution in Ohio.
