Designed to be navigated easily, our website can provide you with the resources you need. Here, you will find contacts in the field, training locations, how to become certified, and vendor information. Or you can simply familiarize yourself with our association and how we may assist you.
The American Jail Association staff and Board of Directors are here to serve you and all the jails across our great Nation. We represent the smallest of jails to the largest. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns, and suggestions.
We stand by our “mission statement,” to focus exclusively on supporting the professionals who staff and operate our Nation’s jails, and we encourage you to become involved in our association. Together we can represent corrections professionals in all capacities and be the “go-to place” for jail resources.
