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.

Attendee Registration and Housing are now open!


Make April the Month of AJA!

AJA is offering registered attendees access to additional virtual conference content after the close of the in-person conference in Columbus. These new virtual workshops will be held during the two weeks following. And after getting home, conference attendees can access all the other workshops they didn’t get to see in-person. All workshops will be recorded and streamed to a virtual audience so that all attendees can access AJA’s fresh, groundbreaking training for jail professionals. All content will be available for at least 90 days.
