The next executive director of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice will lead nearly 40,000 employees, manage a $3 billion annual budget, direct more than 100 prisons with nearly 150,000 inmates and oversee the nation's busiest execution chamber.

 

The prisons chief will take over an agency that is struggling to recruit and retain employees, maintain aging facilities and keep contraband out of inmates' hands.
