 Nebraska Department of Corrections Director Scott Frakes has announced his resignation.

Frakes said in a statement 

“It has been an honor to be a part of Governor Ricketts’ cabinet, and to serve the citizens of Nebraska,”  “Leading and working beside the 2,200 team members that make up NDCS has been an incredible experience—truly the high point of a 40-year corrections career.  I am proud of the many accomplishments the agency has achieved during my tenure.  Seeing those things come to fruition, to the benefit of staff members and our inmate population, has been enormously satisfying.”

Frakes has served in the role since 2015, and his resignation will become official on October 7.
