Docket Unit

This unit encompasses the following divisions: Intake, File Room, Final Review and Parole Certificates/Releases. Employees of this unit are responsible for processing each inmate after they enter the Alabama Department of Corrections to determine if and when they are eligible for parole consideration. They compile all necessary information to determine an inmate’s eligibility date according to Alabama law. The unit also maintains all inmate files awaiting parole consideration, including inmate correspondence and any statements in support of parole. They are responsible for setting hearings for all non-victim cases once the inmate is eligible, as well as sending parole denial letters following each Board hearing. Finally, the unit provides the final review for all parole files for accuracy and compliance with the law prior to each hearing.
