American Jail Association

The American Jail Association (AJA) is a national, nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting those who work in and operate our nation's jails.  AJA's goal is to provide the best and most current information available through our American Jails magazine, extensive training seminars and publications containing information the jail professionals rely on. 

<P>I feel very proud to be a part of such a large organization.&nbsp; I enjoyed the variety of classes so that one can tailor their experience to better suite one's personal development needs/goals.&nbsp; Interacting with fellow correctional professionals gave me a sense of pride for my profession and a renewed appreciation for my agency.&nbsp; Thanks again for your time and Dedication . . . I am a better officer and supervisor as a result.&nbsp; </P> <P>-- Joksan Morgan&nbsp; Orlando, FL</P>

Apart From The Rest...
