Alabama Bureau of Pardons and Paroles | Special Populations
The Special Populations and Programs Division is responsible for the education, behavioral, and treatment programs administered by the Bureau, including the Alabama Certain Enforcement Supervision Program, Day Reporting Centers, Day Reporting Center Lites and other programs. These programs provide intensive treatment, education, behavioral modification and supervision for moderate to high risk clients supervised by the agency.
It is the mission of DRCs to provide high-risk probationers and parolees the opportunity to change criminal thinking and behavior through a combination of counseling, educational training and close supervision. DRCs focus on education, employment, substance abuse, mental health and cognitive restructuring needs. Community service is also required. DRC Lites are condensed versions of DRCs and offer similar programming but are limited to focusing on cognitive behavioral treatment, substance dependence assistance and educational/job training.
ACES is a supervision model that mirrors the Hawaii’s Opportunity Probation with Enforcement program. ACES supervision is ordered by the probationary judge and clients are closely supervised and participate in a daily hotline call, which is also called a color code. This call allows participants to get three to five drug tests a month without the extra cost. The client contacts a toll-free number daily to receive their color and must report in for a drug screening.
Special Populations also incorporates the Interdisciplinary Grant Team, which coordinates the application for and implementation of federal, state and local grants. Some of the current grants in place include Project Safe Neighborhood and Helping Co-Occurring Substance Abuse and Mental Health Offenders Find Supportive Service (COSMOSS). Project Safe Neighborhood creates proactive activities to reduce violent crime rates in Montgomery, Ala. COSMOSS provides substance abuse and mental illness assistance to offenders.
