Gov. Brian Kemp announced Friday that Vic Reynolds will be the new director of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
Kemp and Reynolds are allies in targeting gang violence in the state of Georgia. Kemp has been searching for a new director since Vernon Keenan, GBI head for 15 years, announced his plans to retire in mid-December.
Reynolds is a former police officer, chief magistrate judge, prosecutor and criminal defense attorney. He was elected as Cobb’s District Attorney in 2012.
