The Arkansas Parole Board is proud to be one of four Parole Boards nationally to be accredited by the
American Correctional Association
(ACA). This recognition is a direct result of the high level of professionalism with which we approach our duties.
About the American Correctional Association
One of the American Correctional Association's greatest strengths has been the development of national standards and implementation of the accreditation process. Through accreditation, an agency is able to maintain a balance between protecting the public, and providing an environment that safeguards the life, health and safety of staff and offenders. Standards set by ACA reflect practical up-to-date policies and procedures, and function as a management tool for more than 1,500 correctional agencies in the United States.
