District Attorney Recovery Team

The District Attorney’s Restitution Recovery Team (also known as DART) was formed for the purpose of monitoring, tracking, and collecting restitution owed by convicted offenders to victims of crime.

The District Attorney’s Office has two Recovery Divisions that specialize in the collection of unpaid funds owed by defendants. They are the District Attorney’s Restitution Recovery Team (DART) and the District Attorney’s Municipal Recovery Unit (the Recovery Unit). DART handles cases referred to our office by the District & Circuit Courts of Mobile County when a defendant has not paid restitution to the clerk of the court within the period of time specified by the Court. In addition to collecting unpaid restitution, DART also collects unpaid court costs and fines, as well as unpaid traffic tickets given through the County and State by a Deputy or State Trooper.

Please note: For Municipal Court traffic tickets given by a City of Mobile police officer, please contact Mobile Municipal Court at (251) 208-7055 or the District Attorney’s Municipal Recovery Unit at (251) 574-5510. If you are the victim of a crime and restitution was ordered in your case but is not being paid, you may contact DART at (251) 574-5515 or email DART Supervisor Ashleigh Long at ashleighlong@mobileda.org
