The board is an independent statutory agency that provides leadership to the adult and juvenile criminal justice systems and expertise on public safety issues. It’s also a data and information clearinghouse that offers technical assistance on a wide range of community corrections issues.

Gore has been sheriff since 2009, and a member of the department since 2004. Before that, he served in several positions with the FBI between 1970 and 2003. Gore was also chief of investigations with the District Attorney’s Office for a year between stints with the FBI and sheriff’s department.

Gore’s appointment will require state Senate confirmation. There is no compensation for the position.
