The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Detention Facility Receives Its Fourth ACA Accreditation Award

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Detention Facility Receives Its Fourth ACA Accreditation Award

Douglas County Sheriff Darren Weekly and members of his Accreditation Staff were in Philadelphia last week to receive a very well-earned award, their 4th American Correctional Association (ACA) Re-Accreditation. This process includes daily compliance with standards that address all aspects of correctional administration and operations, and an on-site assessment (which occurs every three years) from ACA evaluators to confirm compliance.
 
“This was a very proud moment for our entire Office to once again receive accreditation status from the ACA. Our staff has been working hard over the last three years to ensure we meet or exceed nationally recognized best practices for the operation of our facility and the care of the individuals incarcerated there. As the Sheriff, I am committed to the excellence of our agency and the service we provide to our entire community,” said Sheriff Weekly.
