Attorney General Jeff Sessions has appointed Army Gen. Mark Inch to oversee the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
“General Mark Inch has served this country at home and abroad for 35 years,” Sessions said in a statement on Tuesday.
“As a military policeman for nearly a quarter of a century and as the head of Army Corrections for the last two years, General Inch is uniquely qualified to lead our federal prison system.”
“My confidence that he will be a highly effective leader of the Bureau of Federal Prisons is second only to my gratitude for his willingness to continue his service to this great country in this critical role,” Sessions added.
The Hill added:
Inch is slated to take the helm of the federal prison system following Thomas Kane, who was acting director of BOP since January 2016.
