AJA’s Professional Development Workshops, Virtual Trainings, Summits and Conference focus exclusively on issues specific to the operations of local correctional facilities. These single or multi-day intensive trainings provide beneficial and useful information to bring back for use in your facility. Many times the greatest learning experiences come from the networking. Classes include practitioners from all around the country. Many attendees keep in touch with those friends and colleagues they met through AJA training!

Join the thousands of correctional professionals who have turned to AJA for training, while advancing their careers, and strengthening their agencies.

The American Jail Association can provide your staff with cost-effective, custom-designed training and technical assistance in the comfort and convenience of your own facility. For information, contact Training Coordinator Lori Bachtell at 301-857-2620 or
