Garza County Regional Juvenile Center Awarded National Accreditation

Elias Diggins, Chairperson of the Commission on Accreditation for Corrections (CAC), and Bridget Bayliss-Curren, Director of Standards and Accreditation, American Correctional Association recently announced the accreditation of the Garza County Regional Juvenile Center. The award was presented in conjunction with the American Correctional Association 2016 Winter Conference on January 25, 2016 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

In presenting the award, Elias Diggins, Chairperson of the CAC, and Mary Livers, President of the American Correctional Association (ACA), complimented the facility on their professional level of operation and their success in completing the accreditation process. The agency is one of over 1,500 correctional organizations currently involved in accreditation across the nation.

The accreditation program is a professional peer review process based on national standards that have evolved since the founding of the Association in 1870. The standards were developed by national leaders from the field of corrections, law, architecture, health care, and other groups who are interested in sound correctional management. ACA standards address services, programs, health care and security operations essential to effective correctional management. Through accreditation, an agency is able to maintain a balance between protecting the public and providing an environment that safeguards the life, health, and safety of staff and offenders. Standards set by ACA reflect practical up-to-date policies and procedures and function as a management tool for agencies and facilities throughout the world.

The three-year accreditation award granted to the Garza County Regional Juvenile Center does not signal the end of their involvement in the accreditation process. During the award period, staff will work to improve any deficiencies identified during the audit and maintain continuous compliance with the standards.

The Texas Juvenile Justice Department found that GCRJC exceeded expectations in those measures. The program has been recognized for the responsive and credible handling of youth grievances to deal with issues or questions that impact youth served by the Center. According to TJJD, GCRJC had the highest M&I Comprehensive Review Score at 92.95% and had the lowest Re-incarceration rate at the one year benchmark, at 4.3%!

The GCRJC program has developed and maintained a positive youth culture that has allowed effective youth and staff interaction, and fostered a facility environment that is conducive for youth to participate and get the most out of the therapeutic services offered.
