On Thursday, December 9th, AJAC held their 4th Quarter meeting at the Lee County Meeting Center in Opelika, AL.  Jail Administrators from around the state met to discuss the exciting events and trainings planned for 2022 as well as participate in some much-needed training.  The events discussed were future meetings to include a winter conference in conjunction with NIJO as well as involvement in the JAILCON South coming to Huntsville, AL.

Also, they discussed plans for training to include the Alabama Basic Corrections Academy as well as expanding it to include training for supervisors.  Those attending were excited about the planned events and training and actually discussed adding more dates for the Alabama Basic Corrections Academy to meet the growing need for new officers to get trained
