American Police Force, the company contracting with Two Rivers Authority to run its new-but-empty jail in Hardin, announced Friday its new public relations person.
Becky Shay, a former Billings Gazette reporter whose beat included the Hardin facility, accepted the position Friday.
Shay was announced as APF's spokesperson by Michael Hilton, leader of the company.
Gazette Editor Steve Prosinski said he found out about Shay's new job on Friday when she resigned from the newspaper.
"We weren't aware that she was talking with them about this position until she resigned," he said.
