FINALLY! A state elected official who has the courage to stop kicking that 'old dented prison can' down the road.
Janette Grantham, Director of VOCAL applauds Governor Ivey for her courage, foresight, and determination for a better and safer Alabama.
Today, Governor Ivey announces the next step in the construction of three new prisons to replace current facilities which are collapsing more each day.
Per Ms. Grantham, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know the construction of new facilities is the first step toward solving Alabama's horrible prison facilities. Of course, this construction will not solve all of Alabama's prison problems, but it is a first step forward in our journey to provide humane facilities for inmates and ensure the safety our families and communities.
Thank You - Governor Ivey for your resolve to keep us safe.

This year, OVC commemorated NCVRW on April 7–13. This year's NCVRW theme—Honoring Our Past. Creating Hope for the Future.—celebrates the progress made by those before us as we look to a future of crime victim services that is even more inclusive, accessible, and trauma-informed. Vocal's annual candlelight vigil was held on April 12th, 2019 at 7 pm on the lawn of the Attorney General's office. The guest speakers were Chief Ernest Finley & Attorney General Steve Marshall. Many individuals who have continuously helped fight for crime victim's right's were honored that night.
