NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Gov. Bill Haslam has appointed a law enforcement veteran to the state's Board of Parole.
Gary M. Faulcon spent 25 years with the Nashville Police Department.
During that time, he was assigned to various divisions including background and recruitment, criminal investigations, vice and the special weapons and tactics team. He was also commander of the bomb squad.
Haslam believes Faulcon's background in criminal justice will be an asset to the board.
Faulcon's appointment became effective on Monday and will continue through Dec. 31, 2017.
