My staff and I found the training material in DACOTA to be accurate, current, and informative. Initially I was reluctant, however, now I am confident online training is the future for corrections. We appreciate the time, effort, and resources in the development of Detention and Corrections Online Training Academy (DACOTA).

DACOTA is training that empowers administrators and staff. NIJO’s research and delivery places applicable information in an adult learning model that is similar to that used by higher education institutions. DACOTA gives real answers to relevant issues. The Supreme Court has deferred to prison officials for their expertise in running local facilities. Such a trust requires that we are self-governed and administrate with integrity and wisdom. NIJO is a worthy mentor; DACOTA is their classroom.
