LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder today announced appointments to the Community Corrections Board. The Board advises the Department of Corrections in developing goals, criteria and guidelines for local governments in establishing community corrections programs and in determining grant guidelines for Comprehensive Corrections Plans. These plans are intended to provide safe, cost-effective alternatives to incarceration.

"These individuals will provide key insight that will help ensure appropriate and effective local corrections programs that also safeguard citizens," Snyder said.

Inman earned a bachelor's degree from Northern Michigan University. He represents the general public.

In his 30 years of law enforcement, Bailey has worked for the Schoolcraft, Stevensville and St. Joseph Township Police Departments, as well as the Berrien County Sheriff's Department. He graduated from Kalamazoo Valley Community College Police Academy. Bailey replaces Robert Pickell.
