ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia parole officials are giving crime victims a chance to discuss their cases with parole staff.

A spokesman for the State Board of Pardons and Paroles says the board has scheduled a Victims Visitors' Day for July 11 in Lawrenceville.

The event is organized in collaboration with the Gwinnett County Victim Witness Assistance Program. It's meant to give crime victims a chance to meet with board members and parole staff to discuss the cases and parole status of offenders.

Crime victims who wish to attend are asked let the Department of Corrections and Parole Board's Office of Victim Services know by July 5. Appointments can still be made after this date.

Officials say this will be the 17th victims visitors' day in Georgia since 2006.
