We are committed to providing quality adult probation and parole services for the State of Alabama. These services involve paroles, restoration of voting rights, and other issues within our authority and responsibility. Pre-sentence, pre-probation, youthful offender and other investigations and reports are provided to the sentencing courts throughout the state. We have more than sixty field offices positioned around the state that are staffed to provide these services to the courts and to supervise those offenders placed on parole by the Board of Pardons and Paroles or on probation by the courts. For addresses and telephone numbers of the our offices, click on “Locations” under "About Us" at the top.

Probation and Parole Officers 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 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 ( see:
Rules, Regulations and Procedures ). However, staff personnel may speak with you about specific cases. You may e-mail your comments or questions to
