(1) There is hereby created in each judicial district a victims and witnesses assistance
and law enforcement board, referred to in this article as the “board”. Each board shall be composed of five members to be appointed by the chief judge
of the judicial district. In making such appointments, the chief judge shall consider whether an appointee
represents or belongs to an organization, public or private, which might reasonably
be anticipated to be a recipient of moneys pursuant to this article. In multicounty judicial districts, to the extent possible, members shall fairly
reflect the population of the judicial district. The board shall designate one of its members as chairman.
(2) The term of office of each member of the board shall be three years; except that,
of those members first appointed, one shall be appointed for a one-year term, two
for two-year terms, and two for three-year terms. All vacancies, except through the expiration of term, shall be filled for the unexpired
term only. Each member may be reappointed once and serve two consecutive terms. A person may be reappointed to the board thereafter if it has been at least one
year since such person served on the board.
(3) Members of the board shall receive no compensation.
