April 3, 2022 GMT

STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) — Georgia’s parole board plans to hold its next monthly meeting on the campus of Georgia Southern University.

The State Board of Pardons and Paroles will meet at 2 p.m. on April 13 at the Williams Center on the Statesboro campus, according to an agency news release. The board’s monthly meetings, which are usually held in Atlanta, are used to provide operational updates, policy reviews and presentations.

The five-member board plans to discuss the state’s parole process and criminal justice system with Georgia Southern students following the meeting. The meeting and discussion will be available by Zoom to students on the school’s Armstrong campus in Savannah.

Parole reviews, considerations and decisions are not part of the board’s monthly meetings. Board members vote electronically on parole cases daily, the release says.
