As of January 1, 2015, and pursuant to state law, the Alabama Forestry Commission (AFC) has ceased performing any law enforcement functions, and its Forest Investigators have been transferred to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA). The AFC is no longer the agency responsible for investigating forestry-related crimes including arson, illegal burning, timber theft, or logging equipment theft.

All calls or inquiries related to such crimes should be directed to the ALEA dispatch center at (334) 242-0700 or (334) 242-4128, which will subsequently be routed to the appropriate law enforcement personnel for a response.
