Sanders Appoints Jamol Jones to the Arkansas Parole Board

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.—Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced today that she will appoint Jamol Jones to the Arkansas Parole Board.  
Jones’ appointment will expire on January 14, 2030, and he will be replacing Jerry Riley. 
“Today, I am appointing former police officer and Army veteran Jamol Jones to serve on the Parole Board,” Sanders said. “I am confident that he will work to ensure violent, repeat offenders are kept off the streets while also providing opportunities for those in prison to see positive behavioral change by focusing on mental health, faith-based programs, and workforce skills. His prior law enforcement experience makes him a clear choice to take on this important role, and I look forward to working together as we empower Arkansans with a safer, stronger state.”
