TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Department of Corrections has promoted the acting director of 10 regional parole offices in the northern part of the state.

Mark Keating has been acting director for the past several months. The department has now named him the permanent director of the 52-county Northern Parole Region.

Keating replaces Peggy Lero, who stepped down to serve on the state Prisoner Review Board.

The review board determines whether offenders are paroled from prison. Parole offices supervise offenders after their release from prison.

The Northern Parole Region has offices in Atchison, Great Bend, Hays, Junction City, Kansas City, Lansing, Lawrence, Olathe, Salina and Topeka.

Keating has worked for the department since 1999.
