November 2020 Group Watch: New Director of Bureau of Pardons and Paroles

Governor Ivey has appointed Sen. Cam Ward (R-Alabaster) to serve as director of the Alabama Bureau of Pardons and Paroles,  effective December 7, 2020. Currently in his third term in the Alabama State Senate, Ward serves as the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee where he has spearheaded bills related to criminal justice and prison reform. He is also a practicing attorney where he has focused much of his private career in economic development. “Cam Ward has spent his career as an attorney and public servant dedicated to Alabama’s criminal justice system,” Governor Ivey said. “As he transitions to director of Pardons and Paroles, I’m confident that his background and experience will position him to closely follow the letter of the law while providing individuals every opportunity possible to rebuild their lives post incarceration.” Prior to his tenure in the Alabama Senate, Ward was elected to the Alabama House of Representatives in 2002 where he served two terms. He previously worked as a deputy attorney general for Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor. “I’m honored that Governor Ivey had the confidence to appoint me to this position,” Cam Ward said. “I have committed my career in the Senate to improving our criminal justice system in Alabama, and I look forward to working with Governor Ivey going forward in this effort.”
