Georgia Department of Corrections Family Day 2022

Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles' officials saw hundreds of offender family members at the Georgia Department of Corrections Family Day.

Parole Board Executive Director Chris Barnett spoke at the event's opening ceremony.

"Family members and friends can assist with the successful re-entry of the offenders. For an offender leaving prison to be successful, they must have that support. Certainly, we are meeting with families to provide parole status updates, but also to ensure the families understand the need for the offenders to be parole ready," stated Barnett.

Barnett says family members should provide support and encourage offenders to complete necessary and beneficial programming while incarcerated.
