OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt has appointed a longtime Department of Corrections veteran to lead the agency.

Stitt on Friday announced that Scott Crow would serve as the agency’s executive director. A 23-year employee of the agency, Crow has served as the agency’s interim director since June, when his predecessor Joe Allbaugh abruptly resigned.

In a statement, Stitt praised Crow for helping organize re-entry fairs ahead of a mass commutation and for improving morale among agency employees.
