    Alabama Jail Training Academy off to good start

    The Alabama Jail Training Academy got off to an outstanding start last week, when 12 senior jail officers from around the state spent two days in a “train the trainer” course taught be the National Institute for Jail Operations. The academy is a joint effort of the Alabama Sheriffs Association and ACCA, with the curriculum developed by the National Institute for Jail Operations. Graduates can earn a certificate for completing four courses, and counties in the ACCA Self-Insurance Funds can get full or partial reimbursement for some registration fees.


    Merry Christmas!

    The ACCA office will be closed Dec. 24-25 and will reopen on Friday, Dec. 26.
