Q: How can industry leaders plan for better correctional officer professionalization and accreditation?
A: Accreditation Corrections and Privatization Jennifer ONeal CJS 230 Jean OGallagher July 24, [ 2011 Axia College of University of Phoenix Corrections Accreditation and Privatization 2 The American Correctional Association (n.d.) website defines accreditation as A system of verification that correctional agencies/facilities comply with national standards promulgated by the American Correctional
Association. Privatization creates competition with the public prisons and jails within the community, which then acts as an encouragement for the public prisons and jails to make needed improvements. Accreditation and privatization effect jails and prisons in the country; lets take a look at how accreditation effects the professional development, how privatization affects the state and federal prison systems, and how well privatized prisons meet correctional criteria. Over approximately the last two decades, the correctional administration has become very familiar with accreditation and professionalization. Foster (2006) says Professionalization has to do with gaining professional status for persons working in corrections, while accreditation seeks comparable status for their employing organizations. Corrections has a form of professionalism because there are probably well over a million people within the United States who work in the corrections field, and some of these people have to work in a non-secured area such as probation and parole officers work in. Probation and parole officers have to show their professionalism when working with their clients. Correctional officers within the jails and prisons have to do the same while they are working, but they could both be considered different levels of professionalism. This is because probation and parole officers can come out of college with their degree and with no serious criminal background they are eligible for the job once they pass the civil service testing that is given. ]
