Vic Reynolds leads the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI), overseeing a nearly $280 million annual budget, directed towards law enforcement, assisting local police with criminal investigations through resources such as the crime lab and funding the state’s medical examiners.
The GBI will also investigate officer-involved shootings and other serious police use-of-force incidents if it is asked to do so by a local police or sheriff’s department. The GBI also collects and reports statewide crime statistics and other law enforcement-related data.
Formerly the District Attorney for Cobb County, Reynolds was appointed to the position of GBI director in 2019, shortly after Governor Brian Kemp took office. A key project he has helmed is the state’s two-year-old Gang Task Force, an initiative promised by Kemp on the campaign trail.
