BJA Correctional Training Academy.

The Moss Group will be presenting a workshop at ACA 2023, January 27-31, in Orlando! In 2019, TMG was awarded a multi-year initiative from the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) to examine the state of correctional academy training. During the last 18 months, TMG has conducted a comprehensive scan of correctional training, in collaboration with BJA, CLA, ACA, IACTP, and AWEC, which has included administering a national survey of DOC academies; reviewing and evaluating the design and delivery of training curriculum; and conducting on-site observations, to include review of academy organization and infrastructure, technology and training outcomes, as well as facilitating staff interviews and focus groups. Join TMG and BJA as we share trends and findings to date, including the role and impact of technology and staff recruitment and retention on today’s correctional training environment.
