We are committed to providing quality adult probation and parole services for the State of Alabama.
These services involve paroles, pardons, restoration of voting rights, and other issues within the
Board’s authority and responsibility. Pre-sentence, pre-probation, youthful offender and other
investigations and reports are provided to the sentencing courts throughout the state. The agency
has sixty-one field offices positioned and staffed to provide these services to the courts, and
supervision for those offenders placed on parole by the Board or probation by the courts. For
addresses and telephone numbers of the field offices, click on “About Us” at top.
Probation and Parole Officers are appointed by the Board, subject to the merit system, and are
supervised by the Board as provided by state statute. They are sworn peace officers with powers
of arrest and execution, and as such must meet the qualifications and training requirements of
the Alabama Peace Officers’ Minimum Standards and Training Act.
Individual Board Members are prohibited by the Board’s Rules, Regulations and Procedures from discussing specific cases which may be before them or which may come
before them in the future except during open public meetings when there is a quorum present and
to which notices have been sent to all parties required by law. However, staff personnel may
speak with you about specific cases. You may e-mail your comment to the Board at
