A former Citrus County Detention Facility security chief has been named warden of the Tecumseh State Correctional Institution in southeast Nebraska..
Todd Wasmer was previously chief of security for the Citrus County Detention Facility in Lecanto. Wasmer assumes his new duties in August.
The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services made the announcement on Monday that Wasmer will take the reins at Tecumseh, and that he will replace current warden Brad Hansen, who is retiring after 42 years with the department. Hansen has served as the prison’s warden since 2016.
Wasmer most recently served as an assistant warden of the Eloy Detention Center in Arizona, a facility housing detainees for Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.
The Tecumseh prison was the site of two deadly inmate uprisings in 2015 and 2017.
