ATLANTA (AP) - Terry E. Barnard has been re-elected chairman of the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Parole.

The board announced Tuesday that Barnard was re-elected as chairman and James Mills as vice chairman for 2016 at the board’s monthly meeting.

Barnard says this is an exciting time for criminal justice reform in the state with the creation of the new Department of Community Supervision.

Barnard was first appointed to the Board in May of 2010. He was reappointed to a full seven year term in December 2010.

Mills was appointed to the Board in November 2011. He served as vice chairman for 2015.

The Board consists of five full-time members who make parole decisions. During 2014, the Board made more than 76,000 clemency decisions regarding parole cases.
