40th Annual Conference & Jail Expo

April 10-14, 2021 | Columbus, Ohio

AJA’s Annual Conference & Jail Expo is the only national event that focuses exclusively on local jails and detention facilities.

In-Person and Virtual Conference Content

This year, AJA is offering in-person and virtual content to registered attendees! All conference workshops in Columbus will be recorded and provided to in-person and virtual attendees, as well as pre-recorded workshops. This solution gives attendees access to more conference content than ever -- the entire workshop offering of 65 workshops -- for at least 30 days! That provides five times more education than attendees could access in previous years.
