The Alabama Department of Corrections (ADOC) on Thursday announced the promotions of two new wardens within the state’s prison system.

Following a brief assignment at the Holman Correctional Facility, McClain worked at the Easterling Correctional Facility just short of 10 years before transferring to Tutwiler at the rank of sergeant. She continued to progress in her career and received a promotion to captain in 2015.

“It is such an honor to have the opportunity to recognize someone that has worked so hard and is so deserving of a promotion,” said Deputy Commissioner of Women’s Services Wendy Williams. “Warden McClain has prepared herself for this opportunity and she is ready to take on this leadership role at Tutwiler.”

Crabtree spent the majority of his career at the Limestone Correctional Facility before his promotion to lieutenant and subsequent assignment to the Decatur Community Based Facility in 2011. He was promoted to captain in 2016 and accepted an assignment to the Birmingham Community Based Facility.

“I am very grateful for this opportunity and I look forward to working closely with the staff, volunteers and the community,” said Crabtree. “Our efforts will be focused on providing a safe work environment for our employees and delivering effective reentry services to those in our custody who are preparing to leave the prison system.”
