The Pardon Attorney and her team met with over 500 inmates and staff during their visit.
The visit to FCI Aliceville was the third in a series of quarterly educational events that the Pardon Attorney is conducting for inmates and staff at different Bureau of Prisons locations.

During that visit, the Pardon Attorney and her team met with over 700 inmates and staff in a day-long series of trainings throughout the facility. The second took place at USP Lewisburg, a medium-security institution in Pennsylvania in April 2023.
