MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Secretary of Law Enforcement Spencer Collier has outlined plans to close driver’s license offices if the Legislature decreases the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s funding.

Collier said in a statement Friday that the first phase of closures on Oct. 1 would impact 33 part time field offices in rural areas.

Collier says a second phase of closures on Jan. 1 would impact 29 district offices and a third round of closures to eight remaining offices on March 1 would lead to the department consolidating operations at offices in Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile and Montgomery.

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency recently introduced a program offering drivers online license renewals, self-serve kiosks, digital licenses for smartphone users and more.

State lawmakers have proposed cuts to the agency to resolve a major general fund shortfall.
