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

CCNO Executive Director Jim Dennis said the three auditors reviewed numerous files as well as talked to various staff and inmates during the process. He said the ACA audit is a challenge that requires various files and the facility to reflect the highest standards. But he added that it makes CCNO better and staff can move forward despite having to deal with tough times the past two years. He said this included Toledo pulling out of the regional jail.

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

During the 2017 audit, CCNO complied with 100 percent of 60 mandatory standards.

Williams County Sheriff Steve Towns said corrections is mostly an under appreciated part of law enforcement but had high praise for the CCNO staff who worked together and do a super job to earn 100 percent accreditation.

This will be CCNO’s fifth ACA accreditation.
