Indiana Department of Correction Deputy Commissioner Christina Reagle has been promoted to the top post. That, after current IDOC Commissioner Rob Carter announced he is stepping down to take a position with Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP.
He will join the law firm’s public affairs strategies group.
Carter’s last day is Oct. 14. He was appointed commissioner in 2017.
“It has been an honor to implement many of Gov. Holcomb’s initiatives, including focusing on increasing vocational training for incarcerated individuals and reducing recidivism to an all-time low,” said Carter. “I leave behind an agency and leaders poised to continue focusing on providing a safe environment that fosters training and preparation for life after incarceration.”
Reagle has been with IDOC since 2011 and was named a deputy commissioner in 2019. She oversees the finance, construction services, data analytics and technology divisions.
“I am committed to the responsible management of IDOC that results in a safe environment where employees are valued and incarcerated individuals are given the best opportunity to return to their communities as productive citizens,” Reagle said. “I look forward to leading a committed team.”
Reagle also worked for the Indiana Department of Child Services. She begins her new role Oct. 17.
