What's Your Story?

Do you have a story to share? An experience that can help others? For every success, for every failure, for every lesson learned, there is a story to be told.

Innovative approaches and solutions that address operations, staff training and retention, inmate programming, healthcare, and other equally important issues are being developed in jail facilities across the Nation.

Now is the time to consider penning an article in American Jails magazine to tell your story… how you went from having a problem to how you found a solution. Your experiences and expertise can greatly assist individual agencies in particular, and the field of local corrections in general.

For more information about submitting an article or guest editorial, please review our submission guidelines here, or contact Steve Custer at stevec@aja.org.
