Page Title: Standards and Accreditation
One of the American Correctional Association's greatest strengths has been the development of national standards and implementation of the accreditation process. Through accreditation, an agency is able to maintain a balance between protecting the public, and providing an environment that safeguards the life, health and safety of staff and offenders. Standards set by ACA reflect practical up-to-date policies and procedures, and function as a management tool for more than 1,500 correctional agencies in the United States. Approximately 80 percent of all state departments of corrections and youth services are active participants. Also included are programs and facilities operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the private sector.
