CCNO Gets Accreditation

The Cor­rec­tions Cen­ter of North­west Ohio received the high­est rec­om­men­da­tions for accred­i­ta­tion by audi­tors of the Amer­i­can Cor­rec­tion Asso­ci­a­tion on Wednes­day fol­low­ing a recent three-day intense audit.

CCNO Exec­u­tive Direc­tor Jim Den­nis said CCNO staff had been plan­ning for the audit for the past three years.

Dur­ing the three-day event, audi­tors vis­ited all three shifts as well as ques­tioned both staff and offend­ers.

CCNO was the first regional jail and the fourth jail over­all in the State of Ohio to gain ACA accred­i­ta­tion in April 2005 and was reac­cred­ited in 2008. CCNO received 100 per­cent re-accreditation in Feb­ru­ary 2011 and again on Wednes­day. An audit is con­ducted every three years to main­tain accred­i­ta­tion.

CCNO com­plied with 100 per­cent of the 60 manda­tory standards.
