The Alabama Department of Corrections plans to release another 170 to 200 inmates today (Friday).

Yesterday (Thursday), 134 inmates were released to be on supervision, thanks to the new mandatory supervision law that went into effect Tuesday.

ADOC says no inmate has been or will be released without victim notification. As victim notifications are made, those inmates are added to the list to be released.

After inmates are released from prison, they are processed by the Alabama Bureau of Pardons and Paroles, as well as given an ankle monitor. They are then released to be picked up by family or friends. If an inmate has no one to pick them up, they are taken to a local bus station, where ADOC provides a one-way, nonrefundable and non-transferrable bus ticket to the county where they were convicted.
