The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department is honored to be a co-chair of the American Correctional Association’s (ACA) 146th Congress of Correction slated for Boston from August 5-10, 2016 at the Hynes Convention Center located at 900 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02115.
For more than 143 years, the American Correctional Association has championed the cause of corrections and correctional effectiveness. Founded in 1870 as the National Prison Association, ACA is the oldest association developed specifically for practitioners in the correctional profession. The American Correctional Association shapes the future of corrections through strong, progressive leadership that brings together various voices and forges coalitions and partnerships to promote the concepts embodied in its Declaration of Principles.
This year’s Congress is expected to bring over 2,000 participants to Boston for workshops focusing on a variety of topics including: mental illness and addiction management, new educational opportunities for prisoners, family reunification, and strategic planning, to name only a few.
